FOUR HELD IN SHAM MARRIAGE PROBE !

Four people have been arrested in a series of raids across the West Midlands in an investigation into sham marriages.
The UK Border Agency (UKBA) said the four people arrested, all women from Jamaica, were aged between 36 and 53.
Border officials, along with police, raided a total of 11 homes as they also investigated drug smuggling and people trafficking.
The four women were being held at a police station in Birmingham.
A total of 18 officers took part in the 10 raids in Birmingham and one in Wolverhampton.
A spokesman for UKBA said the four women, who were all arrested in Birmingham, were alleged to have married British citizens solely so they could remain in the UK after overstaying their visas.
