Police swooped on a petrol station after four suspected migrants were seen getting off the back of a lorry.

A picture captured police and an ambulance at the M2 Medway services, with a figure peering out the back of a truck at around 8.30am this morning.

Four men, two who said they are Iraqi, and two Iranians, were referred to the Home Office after police contacted immigration officers.
