Fourteen wanna-be illegals caught

Posted: February 26, 2011 in Law & Disorder

Three would-be illegal immigrants have been prevented from entering the country after UKBA officers found them hiding inside a lorry bound for Blackwood.

IlieThe two men and a woman, all from Eritrea, were found in Calais after officers working in the French port were alerted to their presence by George – a body detection ‘sniffer’ dog.

Officers searched the Slovakian-registered lorry and found the three stowaways hiding among its load of plastic drinking cups.

After the find was made, at 04:05 on 18 February, the stowaways were handed over to the French border police and the vehicle was allowed to continue on its journey to its destination in Blackwood.

The Polish driver and the haulage company now each face a potential fine of up to £2,000 per stowaway if they are unable to prove they took steps to secure the vehicle. That’s if they bother to pay up.

Nine wanna be illegal immigrants have been prevented from entering the UK after UK Border Agency officers found them hiding inside a lorry load of car shells heading for Chichester.

The nine, all men from Eritrea, were found in a German registered lorry at Calais port at 07:20 on Tuesday 15 February when officers were alerted to their presence by sniffer dog Jake, a 4-year-old Labrador cross collie.

The stowaways were handed over to the French border police and the vehicle was allowed to continue onto its destination in West Sussex.

and there’s more!

Two would-be illegal immigrants have been prevented from entering the country after UKBA officers found them hiding inside a lorry bound for Cork.

This time two Iraqi nationals were found in Calais after officers working in the French port were alerted to their presence by Bolt a 3-year-old Labrador body detection ‘sniffer’ dog.

Officers searched the Irish registered lorry and found the two stowaways hiding among its load of milk powder.

After the find was made, the stowaways were handed over to the French border police and the vehicle was allowed to continue on its journey to its destination in Ballineen.

The Hungarian driver and the haulage company now just face a fine of up to £2,000 per stowaway if they are unable to prove they took steps to secure the vehicle. Not much of a deterrent is it.

I’ve told you about my scheme to ban lorries caught with illegals onboard from ever entering the UK again haven’t I?
I’ve designed a sign too!
