17 men were found in the back of a lorry at the Port of Dover this morning

16 of the men were treated for exhaustion and dehydration at the scene by South East Coast Ambulance Service and are currently with officers from the UK Border Agency.

One of the men, believed to be aged in his 30s, has been taken to the William Harvey Hospital.

The Polish driver of the lorry has been arrested and is currently in police custody.

It is thought the men are aged between 16 to 35 years old. It is not yet clear where the men are from, but they are all thought to be from the same area.

The alarm was raised when banging was heard from the back of the lorry, and the vehicle was stopped.
