Three Peterborough men charged with human smuggling through Dover

Three men are due to appear in court accused of smuggling foreign students into the UK through the Port of Dover.

The men, aged 29, 42 and 50 from Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, are charged with conspiracy to facilitate illegal entry into the UK.

Kent Police said they are alleged to have smuggled in the students, who were then moved around the UK or to Europe, between October 2011 and March 2012.

The men are due to appear at Folkestone Magistrates' Court in September.

The 42-year-old and 50-year-old are also charged with money laundering.
