Port of Dover

A man's been charged after a teenage boy was found inside a suitcase at the Port of Dover.

The 16-year-old from Vietnam was discovered a life-threatening condition in the boot of a car arriving from France on Wednesday.

Police say his condition has since improved.

The suitcase the boy was in was found in the boot of a silver Skoda Octavia stopped at the inbound search area of the port, for vehicles arriving in the UK.

Andrei Iancu, who's from Romania, is due in court today accused of attempting to smuggle a person into the UK.
