Immigration officers raid Legs 11 clubs

Last week Immigration officers arrested three people in midnight raids on Birmingham lap-dancing clubs

Legs 11’s ‘premium clientele’ received a shock greater than watching fully clothed women last week, when Home Office Immigration enforcement officers swooped on the clubs on Broad Street and Chinatown.

Checks were carried out on staff and three arrests made at the venues last week.

But a Legs 11 spokesman stressed the clubs did not knowingly employ illegal labour and every worker is thoroughly vetted.

During the raid, a 28-year-old Nigerian man was arrested at Legs 11, Broad Street, for overstaying his visa. He is now in detention pending deportation.

At the same venue, a 30-year-old Albanian man was arrested on suspicion of entering the UK illegally.

While down at Chinatown, a 47-year-old Albanian man was arrested for entering the UK illegally. He is currently being detained pending deportation.

The Home Office spokesman commented: “We are carrying out regular operations across the West Midlands.”

“Legs 11 boasts a hand-picked selection of some of the most beautiful women from around the world.”

According to its website, Legs 11 has been a regular destination for showbiz celebrities and sports personalities since 1996.
