IMMIGRATION officials joined police officers on a combined operation in Hereford last night.

They also worked alongside firefighters and food safety standards officers on Commercial Road and Union Street.

Members of the Leominster Safer Neighbourhood Team were also in the city to make sure a number of food establishments were in order.

A Home Office press officer confirmed to the Hereford Times today that no arrests were made for immigration offences.

The spokesman said the operation was led by West Mercia Police.
