Suspected stowaway killed by a coach

A suspected stowaway was killed after he was hit by the coach he had managed to hideaway on for almost 200 miles.

It is believed that the man of African or Arabic origin climbed beneath the vehicle as it left Calais in France.

Unknown to the driver, he remained there as the coach travelled almost 200 miles to Bexwell, near Downham Market in Norfolk.

As the coach reversed into its home depot at D&H Harrods Coaches at about 1.20am yesterday, the man was hit and died at the scene from his injuries, Norfolk Police said. He is thought to be in his 20s or 30s.
