Clandestine entrants test drivers in the Pas de Calais

Whether it is due to victims of persecution or economic migrants, it is clear that immigration is a prominent topic across Europe. The October issue of R&S, created by Analytica Media, focuses on how these migrations are specifically affecting the drivers of the removal industry. The Code of Practice under the Immigration and Asylum Act addresses a situation where the driver forms a suspicion that he has a clandestine on board prior to entering the UK; however, it does not acknowledge what a driver should do if suspicion arises at the point of disembarkation after entering the UK. In the absence of Government advice, drivers will have to decide on their own whether to risk personal arrest or find a secluded area to let their passengers walk free.
