Wardens flee immigration checks

Almost half Lambeth's wardens failed to turn up to work
By Greg Truscott
ALMOST 50 traffic wardens in one borough have resigned over immigration checks.
Forty-eight Lambeth council parking attendants – half of the borough’s on-street workforce – failed to show up for work when the council’s new parking contractor began running checks on their immigration status.
It is thought these were illegal immigrants or “overstayers” who did not have the right to work in the UK.
SOME HAD DOLED OUT TICKETS FOR YEARS PRIOR TO THE IMMIGRATION CHECKS last month.
The wardens left their jobs after new council parking contractor NCP Services took over from previous contractor Apcoa on August 1.
NCP told the wardens – whose jobs had been transferred over to the new contractor – they would be subject to passport checks.
Within days, around 48 parking attendants failed to show up for their shifts.
