TWO suspected illegal immigrants picked-up by police in a South Warwickshire village have been handed over to Border Control.

The pair, believed to be Chinese or Vietnamese, were arrested in Napton on Tuesday August 11 around 8pm.

It is understood they stowed away on a boat which had been towed back from Calais.

Five men are believed to have got off, and were spotted by an eye-witness who saw them walking towards the village.

Two were seen in a local shop – although it is not know if they were the two arrested.

There have been no further reports of the whereabouts of the possible three others thought to have stowed away on the boat.
