Sixteen people found stowed away in a lorry at Perkins Engines in Peterborough are being questioned by police.
They were found yesterday morning and are thought to be from Eritrea in Africa.
The Home Office says the ten men and six women in the lorry had entered the country illegally.
They were taken to Thorpe Wood police station.
