IlieNine foreign nationals, hiding in a lorry headed for Halesowen, have been prevented from entering the country after being caught at Coquelles.

At 07:40 on 5 March UK Border Agency officers at the French end of the Channel Tunnel examined a British registered freight vehicle with a British driver.

A specialist heartbeat detector alerted officers to the presence of some unexpected passengers in the back of the lorry.

Officers then boarded the trailer and found 9 people hiding among the load of chemical food preservatives which was en route to Halesowen.

Six of the stowaways were Iranian nationals, two were from Afghanistan and one was from Eritrea.

The stowaways were removed from the lorry before being handed over to the French Frontier Police to be let out the back door to have a go another night, I shouldn’t wonder.
