7 smuggled, 13 stopped at the borders

Illegal immigrants tried to reach England in lorries.

Seven illegal immigrants arrived into the UK in the back of a lorry and have been arrested in Dunton Green.

The UK Border Agency (UKBA) officers discovered 13 men in a lorry which had been waiting to board a ferry at Calais.
11 Eritreans, one Iraqi and one Somali were hiding in the Slovak-registered lorry, full of yogurt. The immigrants were handed over to the French authorities, while the yogurt had been due to arrive to a distribution depot in Redditch, Worcestershire.
UKBA Director Tom Dowdall, who leads operations in northern France, said: “It is important we stop would-be illegal immigrants before they reach the UK. That’s why we have got hundreds of British immigration officers based at ports in France and Belgium.”

On the 25 of September, seven illegal immigrants arrived into the UK in the back of a lorry and have been arrested in Dunton Green. Seven men, three from Iran and four from Iraq, were seen jumping from the back of a lorry in London Road. The Immigration Service said the men could be sent back to their countries. Spokeswoman for the service Siân Freestone-Walker said: "In this case they all applied for asylum. We will review their cases on an individual basis and will either look to integrate them into society or remove them from this country."
