UK: 22 migrant workers kept in one house

from News & Star (Carlisle):

A CARLISLE City Council investigation found up to 22 immigrant workers living in conditions of “gross overcrowding” in a four-bedroom house.

The Polish nationals, who are employees at city factory Cavaghan & Gray, were crammed into the terraced property in Currock by an agency working for the firm.

The short-term contract workers, who claim they each pay rent of £45 per week, say some of them had to share a bedroom with four other people at Gardenia Street.

They back up estimates by the city council that there were 20 to 22 people in the house for several nights late last month.
