Two migrants who tried to reach Britain hidden in a car roof box wound up 100 miles further away in France

TWO migrants who tried to reach Britain hidden in a car roof box ended up heading 100 miles back into France.

The pair, both 16 and from Eritrea and Guinea, had broken into the box of a Brit-registered BMW in Calais.

But the Midlands couple in the car had only just arrived and the migrants only realised when they jumped out at a French motorway services.

The couple alerted police who were quickly at the scene and when they opened the roof box they were shocked to find the migrants inside dehydrated but otherwise unhurt.

A police source said: “We always have migrants trying to head to Britain but in this case they were heading even further away.”

A police source said:”The British couple are from central England and had stopped for the night in Calais for the night after arriving on the Eurotunnel.

”The next morning they got up and started driving towards the Vendee for their holiday when after about 100 miles they heard noises and so they pulled over at a service station.

”Police were called and a motorcycle unit arrived on scene and when they opened the box they found the two sixteen year old migrants – one from Guinea and one from Eritrea.

”The two migrants had seen the British registered BMW and assumed it was going back to Britain but instead it was heading away into France. The local prosecutor has been informed as the couple filed a complaint about their stolen belongings.

”For us it was also very unusual as we always have migrants trying to head to Britain from France but in this case they were heading even further away – about 160lm further than where they had started.”

The two were handed over to local migrant charity but they refused to take them and it was unclear where they were.

So far this year, more than 3,000 migrants have reached the UK on boats.

Last week, two were rescued mid-Channel on a paddleboard.
