15 suspected illegal migrants including a child were treated at the side of a motorway today after travelling for hours in the back of a lorry reportedly refrigerated to -25C.

Emergency services rushed to Clacket Lane service station on the M25 in Surrey this morning after the driver of a freezer lorry heard loud banging coming from the back of his truck. Police arrived at the scene to find 14 adults and a child huddled inside the lorry, which was carrying Aunt Bessie's roast potatoes.

It is believed the group clung together in sleeping bags and blankets during their trip from the continent to the UK, where they were picked up over an hour from the Port of Dover. At least three of the group - two men and a woman - have been taken to a nearby hospital

Police closed the petrol station slip road and detained the lorry occupants on suspicion of illegal entry into the country. Pictures from the scene show a group of men clothed in blankets at the Surrey service station. They were given food and warm drinks to recover from the hours they had spent in the cold.

A pile of sleeping bags and coats, which the group are believed to have used in a bid to keep themselves warm, were seen piled at the back of the truck. The lorry, registered to a company in Shropshire, was carrying Aunt Bessie's Crispy Homestyle Roast Potatoes.

UK Visa and Immigration are set to take over the investigation.
