A GROUP of illegal immigrants were caught trying to smuggle themselves into the UK inside wheelie bins.
A sniffer dog belonging to the UK Border Agency noticed the ten men hidden inside the bins packed onto a lorry in the French port of Calais.
The lorry was heading for Calderdale, West Yorkshire, but was stopped before it could board a ferry across the Channel.
A UK Border Agency spokesman said: "We also use carbon dioxide detectors and heart beat detectors to find stowaways."
The illegal immigrants were handed over to the French authorities.
