A man has pleaded not guilty to smuggling 51 illegal immigrants into the UK through Immingham docks.

Hungarian Laszlo Horvath was arrested after Border Force officers stopped his lorry at North Killingholme, North Lincolnshire on 14 June. Inside they found 49 Albanians and two Syrians.

Mr Horvath denied the charge of assisting illegal immigration when he appeared at Grimsby Crown Court.

He was released on bail and will stand trial in November.
