Paris smugglers offering migrants Lidl passage to UK

Illegal migrants are being offered passage across the Channel into Kent in the back of a Lidl supermarket lorry for thousands of pounds.

BBC South East has found people smugglers who operated in the Calais migrant camp are continuing their activities in broad daylight in Paris.

An agent for the gang said: "For an Iranian it will not be less than £5,000, but for Afghans it is £3,000."

Lidl said it had asked it haulier firms to conduct urgent investigations.
