A group of suspected migrants were rescued from a lorry's refrigerated trailer after calling police for help on the M25, officers have said.
Surrey Police said 10 adults and three children were removed from the HGV in Chertsey on Tuesday afternoon.
The force said it received calls from multiple people inside the vehicle.
An officer spotted a lorry matching the description given by one of the callers and it was stopped.
The people were checked over by the South East Coast Ambulance Service before being detained on suspicion of illegally entering the UK, the force said.
The adults were detained in Dover, Kent, while the children were placed in the care of social services.
The youngsters were found unharmed in a Toyota after it failed to stop on the M25.Read the full story ›

The IPCC is investigating claims a former police officer "acted on behalf" of Jimmy Savile before he was questioned over alleged sex crimes.Read the full story ›
Caroline Moore, who claims she was assaulted by Jimmy Savile at the age of 13 while being treated at Stoke Mandeville, says after reading the transcripts of Savile's 2009 police interview she "doesn't understand why he wasn't pressed more firmly".
She called for the Surrey Police officers involved in the Savile interview to be questioned, adding: "I believe the police have behaved poorly. It appears in the transcripts they had plenty to look into."
Kevin Hurley, the Police and Crime Commissioner for Surrey Police has told ITV News' UK Editor Lucy Manning that in hindsight the force "should have probed more intensively" around Jimmy Savile and the allegations he faced.
But Mr Hurley denied the late television presenter ran rings around the officers who interviewed him.
The Independent Police Complaints Commission has launched an independent investigation in relation to the alleged actions of a former inspector with West Yorkshire Police.
The allegations refer to the then officer having ‘acted on behalf’ of Jimmy Savile by inappropriately contacting Surrey Police ahead of a police interview in 2009.
The investigation follows a direction from the IPCC to West Yorkshire Police to record and refer the conduct of the former inspector, identified in a Surrey Police report as ‘Inspector 5’.

Surrey Police was among a number of forces criticised for missing opportunities to investigate Savile allegations in a damning report published in March.
The report by the policing watchdog HMIC identified 11 failures by Surrey Police; among them the fact that officers allowed Savile to choose where and when his interview in 2009 took place.
It also said the interview was "ineffective" because of the "lack of challenge by the Surrey officers to Savile’s assertions".
Responding to the report, Surrey Police Assistant Chief Constable Jerry Kirkby said that there were "a number of learning points" for the force.
