Migrants smuggled here inside a flour tanker... only to be set free by border guards and told how to claim asylum

Covered in flour, they clamber from a foreign lorry - to the amazement of other motorists on a busy motorway. This is the moment that at least nine suspected illegal immigrants emerged from their hiding place after smuggling themselves into the UK. The gang brazenly strolled off into the English countryside. And although all were caught within minutes, almost half were immediately set free. They were even taken to a hostel, given free accommodation and told how to apply for asylum and benefits.
