Somerset sign big hitter Anderson

Somerset have signed big-hitting New Zealand all-rounder Corey Anderson for the second half of this season's NatWestT20 Blast competition.

Anderson was holder of the record for the fastest one-day international century in history, until his feat in 36 balls against the West Indies at Queenstown last year was broken by South Africa's AB de Villiers.

Man arrested over Somerset lorry released on bail

Avon and Somerset police have released a 50-year-old man on bail following his arrest in connection with a lorry carrying 15 people near Ilminster.

ITV News understands he is the driver of the lorry.

A force spokesman said: "A 50-year-old man has been released on police bail pending further enquiries. He was arrested yesterday on suspicion of facilitating entry of people into the UK. 15 people who were found in the back of a lorry remain in a rest centre."

Illegal migration to the UK 'increasing'

Irregular migration to the UK "is increasing", an anti-trafficking expert said.

Andy Desmond, Director of Anti-Trafficking Consultants, told Good Morning Britain that the hot weather simply makes cases, such as those of migrants in lorries, "more overt because of their own distress."

Following the discovery of 35 Afghan Sikhs in a shipping container at Tilbury Docks at the weekend, a lorry has been discovered carrying 15 migrants with suspected dehydration in Somerset. The German driver has been arrested.
