Eighteen people have been rescued from the back of a refrigerated lorry at a service station.

The lorry had pulled into the Haddon services on the A1 near Peterborough.


The driver noticed people in the rear of the vehicle and called the police.

None was injured and all are being cared for by the immigration services.

The 13 men and five women are said to be from Eritrea in North East Africa.

A Cambridgeshire Police spokesman said:

“Stories like this may be distressing, but highlight that slavery and trafficking are real and police need the public’s help.”

The Police ask people to dial 999 if they see people appearing from a lorry or HGV.

Also, if they hear banging from inside a lorry or see people entering climbing aboard.
