Fifteen children found in refrigerated lorry in Newhaven

UK 15 children and six adults found in refrigerated lorry that arrived from France says report

A group of 15 children and six adults have been found in a refrigerated lorry in Newhaven, Sussex.

The 16-year-old was critically ill after surviving a 90-minute ferry crossing from Calais and was only spotted when Border Force officers saw an arm protruding from the case.

The Home Office said Wednesday that the truck was stopped on November 1 at the port of Newhaven shortly after it arrived on a ferry from Dieppe, France.

A Romanian man, understood to be the truck driver, was arrested and charged with assisting unlawful entry into the UK.

A spokesman said the group included 17 people claiming to be aged between 12 and 17 who "presented themselves as Vietnamese".

One of the children had since absconded from council care, he said. The children were cold, but they didn't require medical treatment and were placed in the care of social services.

Two of the adults - a man aged 18 and a woman aged 27 - were expelled from the United Kingdom, while the remaining eight - four women and four men - must now report regularly to Home Office immigration centres while their cases are examined.

The eight other adults, aged between 21 and 28, have been told they must report regularly to the Home Office while their cases are assessed.

A criminal investigation into the circumstances of their arrival was under way.

"It's quite shocking. I've been working on this job since the second week of January and this is the first time I have seen anything like this - it's very surprising".
