Ar­rest over M6 mi­grants

Daily Star - - NEWS -

A MAN was ar­rested af­ter a num­ber of mi­grants fled from the back of a lorry that was stopped by po­lice.

Of­fi­cers last night closed the M6 be­tween junc­tions 15 and 16 near Keele, Staffs.

Wit­ness Gareth Condliffe said: “The route on my sat-nav went red and every­thing stopped.

“By the time I got to the front I could see po­lice were pulling in all the lor­ries.”

A po­lice spokesman said: “A man has been ar­rested and is in po­lice cus­tody. We are as­sess­ing the wel­fare of the peo­ple who ex­ited the ve­hi­cle.”

Bur­ton Al­bion fans trav­el­ling to last night’s 9-0 Carabao Cup semi-fi­nal loss at Manch­ester City were among those held up.
