The group of people were detained last Thursday after police found them inside a refrigerated container on a truck driven by a Romanian man, The Independent reported.

The group, believed to be 21 Vietnamese migrants including 15 children as young as 12, were concealed in a shipment of sparkling water at the Port of Newhaven.

A Romanian man believed to have been driving the vehicle has been charged with assisting unlawful entry to the UK.

The case is being led by Immigration Enforcement Criminal and Financial Investigations. The case illustrates the problems border authorities have with migrants who claim to be children in the hope of getting sympathetic treatment.
