Syrian refugee 'nearly drowned in melted chocolate'

From a camp in the woods outside Calais, a group of Syrian refugees tried to stow away on a lorry bound for the UK.

The men cut through the locks, lifted the hatch on the top of the lorry, and lowered themselves into the tank. It was full of warm, liquid chocolate.

It was a cold night outside and at first it felt good. But soon the men were struggling to stop themselves drowning.

This is their story.
