Five men, who police believe entered this country illegally, have been found in back of a lorry trailer on the A10 at Stetham.
Police officers were called to the main stretch of Cambridgeshire road after reports came in of “suspicious circumstances” in the lay-by on Thursday, January 31.
Eye witnesses reported seeing a very large police presence surrounding a lorry trailer, with four ambulances also on the scene at around 9pm.
A spokesman for Cambridgeshire Police said: “We attended and found five adult men in the trailer of a lorry who were believed to have entered the country illegally.
“They [the men] have been handed to Immigration Services.”

An eye witness, who was driving by at the time, said: “It was insane, all of the flashing lights, the police approaching the lorry and ambulances on standby.
“I couldn’t believe what was going on, I could see officers with torches approaching the back of the trailer but didn’t see what was inside.”
