FIVE suspected stowaways were caught at the Port of Felixstowe and now face deportation.
Both port police and Suffolk police were alerted after the group was discovered hiding in the back of a lorry at the 700-acre complex.
It is understood they were arrested within the port after emerging from the truck and handed over to immigration officials at the UK Border Agency.
A Home Office spokesman said: “We can confirm that Port Police at Felixstowe arrested five suspected stowaways on Tuesday morning.
“The stowaways are not believed to have entered the UK illegally at Felixstowe but at another port.
“We are now taking action to remove them from the country as soon as possible.”
