Two illegal immigrants from Albania found hiding in a Lancashire-bound lorry at Portsmouth ferry port have been deported.
The pair, aged 29 and 30, were detained by Border Force officers after they were discovered in a load of stone arriving on a ferry from Caen yesterday lunchtime.
They had cut through the lorry trailer’s canvas roof and neatly sewn the gap up in an attempt to evade detection.
Andy Lumb, of Border Force at Portsmouth, said: “This incident shows the lengths some would-be illegal entrants will go to in a bid to reach the UK.

The death of Dorset sailor, Andrew Simpson, in San Francisco on Thursday has raised questions over the £6.5 million AC72 boat he was sailing. The Artemis team has released this statement:
"Artemis Racing is in the process of conducting a thorough review and analysis of this week’s accident.
As a part of this review, Artemis Racing is sharing and exchanging data and information with concurrent work being performed by America’s Cup and the San Francisco Police Department."
Until this process is complete, any conclusions being made about the events that led to the boat’s capsizing and its tragic outcome are pure speculation.
Out of respect for Bart’s memory and his family, we ask that the broader sailing community and others reserve judgment until all the facts are known, and not persist in unnecessary rumour. We again thank everyone for their continued support and thoughts during this difficult time.
