London : Three illegal immigrants from India, who managed to sneak their way into Britain past border controls in a German delivery lorry, have been arrested in Southampton after they were caught escaping.
When challenged, the men, aged 24, 22 and 21 could not prove their identities or speak English, a police spokesperson said. They are being held in cells at Southampton Central Police Station.
Said Stephen Carter of the Home Office: "We are able to confirm that three Indian nationals are being interviewed by immigration staff today. It's not easy to say what will happen next.
"We use heat-seeking and heartbeat-tracking technology to prevent this sort of thing happening, but every now and then people will penetrate our borders unlawfully."
