Shocking footage has emerged tonight appearing to show a Spanish lorry driver helping suspected migrants out of the back of his truck on a British motorway – SCROLL DOWN FOR FOOTAGE.1migrantThe dashcam video, posted on social media, shows what is believed to be the driver of the truck opening its back doors and ushering two men and two women out onto the carriageway.  It was shot by a driver following the lorry and was uploaded to the Kent 999s Twitter feed, which monitors crime in the county. The posting claims that the incident took place on the A282 near Dartford, in Kent. It does not say when it is supposed to have taken place but it was only uploaded yesterday evening.

In the footage what appears to be the driver of the truck, which has a Spanish number plate, can be seen ushering people out of the back and onto the road. The driver of the vehicle from which it was shot exclaims “no way” as the middle-aged driver, wearing a yellow t-shirt and jeans, opens the back doors to reveal several people hiding amongst his cargo of fruit.

Over the next 45 seconds a young man carrying a smartphone, a young woman in a headscarf, an elderly lady helped by a man in a red jacket, and a middle-aged man all exit the vehicle. As the shocking scene unfolds in front of him, the stunned driver in the car behind exclaims: “No way. He’s letting them out. Oh, I’ve never seen anything like this in my f***** life.”

An update this morning says the “people who climbed out of a HGV on the A282/M25 under Watling St bridge at 3:40pm yesterday weren’t found.”
