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.

Stephen Carter of the Home Office said, "We are able to confirm that three Indian nationals are being interviewed by immigration staff on Thursday. 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."
