Suspected migrants found in freezer lorry at M25 services


Fifteen people have been found in the back of a freezer lorry on the M25.

Police were called to Clacket Lane services, between junctions five and six, on Friday morning after reports “of concern for safety” over a group of suspected illegal immigrants.

The driver of the white HGV stopped when he heard banging coming from inside and discovered the stowaways.

The slip road to the petrol station on the clockwise carriageway was closed.
