More than 25 'illegal immigrants' found in back of lorry

Police at Haddon service station.

More than 25 suspected illegal immigrants have been discovered in the back of a lorry in Cambridgeshire, police say.

Cambridgeshire Police said the lorry driver, a 54-year-old man from Dover, was among 27 people that had been arrested on suspicion of immigration offences following the discovery.

Five people were taken to hospital after paramedics were called to the site, though none are believed to be seriously ill.

The lorry - which is thought to have come from France - was stopped on the A1 near Stamford after the force received information that the vehicle was travelling north on the M11 earlier today.
