Chocolate-covered stowaways discovered en route to factory. Gotcha!

Quote:
Fifteen illegal immigrants were arrested yesterday after they were found hiding in a lorry filled with around 20 tons of cocoa powder.

The stowaways had climbed into the tanker as it left Amsterdam on its way to a Mars factory in Slough.

But police were alerted after the driver of the 37-ton vehicle prepared to unload his cargo.

A factory worker, who asked not to be named, said: 'Soon after the tanker arrived at the factory, the driver got on top of it to open up the hatches on the roof.

'When the driver looked down through the hatches into the tank, he apparently saw lots of men in brown coloured clothes --all saturated with the powder.

'Goodness knows how they managed to breathe because the powder is very fine and would have been in the air. The tanker was about half full of chocolate powder - the usual maximum load, so there would have been room for 15 men to ride on top of it.'

The men were found coated in 20 tonnes of cocoa powder destined for a Mars Bar factory

He joked: 'Clearly the group of stowaways were in search of the sweet life - and they took the phrase quite literally when they boarded the truck.'

The immigrants are believed to be aged between 20 and 40 and of Middle Eastern origin.

I really didn't know what to think when I read it. I was hoping they were deporting them there to ensure they couldn't return.
