An illegal immigrant has admitted using a false Dutch passport to obtain work at a Wigan food firm.

Divine Amadine pleaded guilty at Liverpool Crown Court to four offences involving fraud, possessing a false passport, using it with intent to deceive and obtaining a pecuniary advantage by deception.

The court heard that 30-year-old Amadine, of Linney Square, Wigan, committed the offences between January, 2006 and April 13 this year and involved her using the fake Dutch passport to obtain employment with Hitchen Foods in Wigan.

Amadine, who appeared via video link equipment from Styal Prison, was further remanded in custody to await sentence on May 12.
