14 illegal immigrants caught in tanker of corn starch

A tanker driver looked on in astonishment as he watched 14 illegal immigrants emerge from his cargo covered from head to toe in maize starch.
Frenchman Ludovic Buns had transported 25 tons of the powder from Calais, France, to a packaging company in Devizes, Wiltshire.
But when he pulled up at DS Smith Packaging on Tuesday evening he heard strange noises echoing inside the tanker drum.
He peered inside to find 14 stowaways - seven men and seven teenagers from Iraq and Afghanistan - caked in white powder.
