Surrey Police tweeted that they had all been caught and arrested after the incident between junctions 12 and 13.

People claiming to have seen the incident on their drive to work took to Twitter to describe their shock at what happened:

Details of the nationalities and ages of those held were not immediately available.

It is the latest incident involving suspected illegal immigrants being found in the backs of lorries. Last Friday a man was arrested after 24 Eritrean nationals were discovered in the rear of an HGV in Whitfield in Kent.

Green Party: Londoners 'really struggling' with fare rises

Darren Johnson AM, London Assembly Member for the Green Party, has hit out at Mayor Boris Johnson over fare increases on London's Transport System.

He was responding to accusations made by Transport for London Commissioner Peter Hendy, who claimed there could be 'social unrest' if transport links are not improved for lower income Londoners living on the outskirts of the capital.

The Mayor recently increased fares for the seventh year in a row. As Sir Peter rightly points out, millions of Londoners are really struggling with stagnant pay and spiralling housing costs. Being forced to pay high fares to use increasingly overcrowded buses and trains is making life even harder.

As more and more low-income Londoners are forced to relocate to outer London boroughs, the Mayor should be reacting by investing in the bus service and delivering safe, appealing cycle routes that people want to use for their commute to work. He should not be pushing road-building projects aimed at encouraging driving, especially when the majority of low-income families in London don’t own a car.
