A person has been charged with assisting illegal entry into the UK after migrants were found in a lorry at a ferry port in East Sussex.

The Home Office has not named the individual saying an investigation by Border Force and the emergency services is ongoing.

A major emergency services response, with ambulances, police and Border Force was sparked on Friday morning after the migrants were discovered in the lorry in Newhaven.

Two men were arrested and six people were taken to hospital, Sussex Police confirmed. No deaths have been reported.

On Saturday a Home Office spokesman said: “Border Force, Immigration Enforcement and emergency services continue to investigate an incident in Newhaven on Friday February 16.

“An individual has been charged with assisting unlawful entry into the UK. While the investigation is ongoing, it would be inappropriate to comment further.”
