One person has been arrested on suspicion of human trafficking and six men have been arrested of suspicion of being illegal entrants following an incident on a Hampshire motorway.

Hampshire police were called to the junction near Cadnam at 6.20pm last night.

A group of men wrapped in foil blankets were then seen by motorists getting out the back of a lorry pulled over on the M27.

An eye-witness said they saw two police cars next to the lorry, in the hard shoulder.

An immigration enforcement spokeswoman said four men from Iraq and Syria have been arrested and two minors have also been passed on to social services.

Delays of up to 30 minutes have been caused by the incident on the west-bound carriageway of the M27, near Junction 2 and 3.
