For well over 15 years anti live export campaigners in England have argued that empty livestock transporters returning to England from Europe could be bringing illegal immigrants in within them; with folding floors and partitions, there are lots of places for humans to hide in a transporter.
Combine this with the fact that hundreds of carried animals have defecated and urinated inside the transporter whilst undertaking a consignment; specialist sniffer dogs used by authorities say at Dover for example, would probably have very little chance of identifying humans by smell only.
A win-win situation for illegal immigration all round; something we have argued about for many years, and for which, we have always been regarded as fools.
Now we ask who are the real fools; as it seems that illegal immigrants have been smuggled into the UK within livestock transporters. Check out the BBC report:
