Germany deports three British electricians for Brexit rule breach | News
Three British traders were fined and deported from Germany as the country tightened its attitude towards unregistered workers after Brexit.
Officials from the Stuttgart customs authority inspected the documents of five workers who were fitting out a sports shop on behalf of a Slovenian company. The men were told that they did not have sufficient records to justify their stay in the country.
The men included a Croat, a Serb and the three British electricians from Hornchurch in east London, identified only as Matthew O.22, Carl P30 and Pyotr O.51 under German data protection laws.
Thomas Seemann, spokesman for the Stuttgart customs office, told the Times that the three Brits had not been prosecuted, but had to do so
