Illegal immigrants caught jumping off lorry on A14 near St Ives

FOUR immigrants were caught jumping off the back of a lorry at Fenstanton on Saturday (June 16).

Cambridgeshire police was called to reports of suspected illegal immigrants climbing out of a lorry off the A14 at 11.45am.

Officers carried out a search of the area, which included a police helicopter and arrested two men aged 28, another 27-year-old man, and a 16-year-old boy, on immigration offences

The 16-year-old has since been released and faces no further action as he is too young, a police spokesman said.

The three others are being held until they are passed over to the UK Border Agency.
