Police have released a statement after two stowaways were found hiding in a school coach.

The two men, described by police as ‘possibly illegal immigrants’, were found in the luggage hold of the coach full of children yesterday evening.

The coach had been carrying children Year 9 and 10 pupils, who had just come back from a three-day school trip visiting Boulogne University about 20 miles south of Calais.

Just as the children were leaving the coach, the hold doors were opened and the two men, described in their early 20s, were found.
