Four men have been arrested after jumping from the trailer of a lorry on the M25 between Cobham services and junction 10 this afternoon.

The lorry had left by the time officers arrived at about 2.30pm.

From August: 27 people and lorry driver arrested at Cobham Services

From September: 117 people have been arrested since last August at the M25 services

Police confirmed that the men, all in their 20s were from war-torn Afghanistan and ran across both carriageways before they were caught by an officer and a team from Redhill’s National Police Air Service unit.

All four have been arrested on suspicion of illegal entry into the UK and have been handed over to the UK Visas and Immigration service, previously known as the UK Border Agency.
