Personal Accounts From Undocumented Migrants (esp in London)

I'm writing a story set in contemporary London and it involves several undocumented migrants (AKA illegal immigrants). I've done some research and I have a good broad picture of the kinds of jobs they might find, the places they might live etc, but I'm still looking for a bit more detail about what everyday life would be like. Obviously it's the kind of thing where it's difficult to find first-person accounts, but if anyone knows of any resources, I'd love to hear about them.

Although my story is set in London, something similar from a different city would probably also be helpful.

Google searched "undocumented migrants London personal accounts" "illegal immigrant stories London" and several variations on that theme. The most useful articles I found were this one and this one.
