A BARBER’s shop in Culcheth has been fined thousands of pounds for employing illegal workers.

The government has published a list of employers who were handed illegal working civil penalties between April and June last year.

And Danny’s Barber Shop, on Warrington Road, is among the businesses named and shamed on the Home Office list.

It was handed a £15,000 penalty for breaching illegal working legislation.

Companies who were found not to have complied with the laws were included on the list after either not making regular payments towards these fines or being served with further penalty notices.

Danny’s Barber Shop has not responded to a request for comment from the Warrington Guardian.
