My name isXXXXX and I am a Solicitor based in London. I'm happy to help with your question today.
If the persons biometrics were taken (e.g. fingerprints) and this shows they are an overstayer then yes they can be sent back.
It sounds like he is in breach of immigration rules and liable to deportation. He cannot work without permission from Home Office and he certainly should not be in the UK without a visa.
It depends. If he is arrested by immigration he could be sent back in a few weeks. But if he appeals the process can take many months. If he wins his appeal he might even stay.
Sadly not much else you can do. You can report him again to UKBA but they are short staffed and under funded these days.
Many people find many different reasons not to leave the UK. For example, he could claim asylum or apply on human rights grounds. Whether or not he can stay really depends on the reasons he gives immigration.
