Eleven suspected illegal immigrants have been found in the back of a lorry travelling on the M25 in Surrey.

The group, including two adults and nine others aged between 11 and 17, were discovered at Clacket Lane services on Thursday.

Surrey Police said the people, all believed to be from Eritrea, were being dealt with by UK Border Force.

A police spokeswoman said the vehicle had come from Belgium and the driver was unaware of the stowaways.
