Twelve men have been discovered hiding inside a refrigerated lorry in a car park near a motorway in Belgium’s Antwerp province, local police say.

Police were called to the scene by the driver who suspected that people had climbed inside his fruit and vegetable lorry.

Eleven Syrians and one Sudanese man were found safe and well and were handed over to immigration officials.

Last week, 39 people were found dead in a refrigerated lorry in England.

The driver of the vehicle, which had arrived in England via the Belgian ferry port of Zeebrugge, has been charged with their manslaughter.
