Rumble / Funny & WeirdEight stowaways were filmed jumping out of the back of a lorry on the M25 near Dartford, in Kent, on Friday, January 25. The video, by truck driver Sam Hollamby, shows the men running to the side of the motorway, jumping over the barrier and then running away. Hollamby told Storyful the whole thing was over in a few minutes, and that police hadn’t responded to his call. According to the BBC, six of the men filmed getting out of the truck were arrested in Upminster, east London, later on Friday. Crossings to the UK from France by boat have hit the headlines in recent weeks, but crossing by lorry remains for more common, according to UK migration officials. Credit: Sam Hollamby via Storyful
