Arrest over M6 migrants
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.
