Three illegal immigrants arrested for walking along M6

Walking along the motorway really isn't the done thing, is it, yet that's what police had to deal with when they caught three suspected illegal immigrants walking on the hard shoulder of the M6 in Staffordshire this morning.

The police were surprised to see the three men strolling along literally a few yards from the busy stretch of motorway at 3.30am today near Hilton Services in Cannock.  They were promptly arrested and handed over to the UK Border Agency in Birmingham for questioning.

It was believed that their work visa had expired.  The three men were thought to be from Sudan.
