“You ‘Orrible Little Men Stowaways!”

A group of illegal immigrants arrived in Britain after stowing themselves aboard Army vehicles, police have said.

The five men were discovered on Tuesday by soldiers at the Duke of Gloucester Barracks, in South Cerney, in Gloucestershire. They are now being held in a detention centre in the county, a police spokesman said.

The group is believed to have climbed aboard the convoy returning from Kosovo at Calais.
I wonder if the Army will be subject to the same penalties as hauliers and ferry companies for unwittingly accommodating stowaways…?
