Asylum seekers spotted under lorry in Melksham

Two men who are believed to be from Afghanistan have claimed asylum in the UK after they were discovered by police in Melksham.

A member of the public reported seeing four men climbing out from under a parked lorry on Dunch Lane on Wednesday last week.

Police arrived at the scene a short time later, and arrested two of them, who have now been taken to an immigration centre for processing.

The other two men have not been found.
