Stowaways found in lorry; BRITAIN IN BRIEF.
A routine check at the CS hannel Tunnel terminal in Coquelles at around 9pm on Tuesday resulted in the stowaways being found hidden in the back of the HGV as it waited to board a shuttle to Folkestone, Kent.
The lorry, whose refrigeration unit was not turned on, was empty apart from the Albanian nationals on board. It was due to drive to Dover to pick up a load for delivery to France.
All 48 - including three children - were handed over to the French authorities while the Romanian lorry driver was arrested.
