According to The Guardian, Wiltshire police said a member of the public called them after noticing suspicious activity involving the vehicle. Once cops arrived to the scene at around 8:30 p.m., they discovered the immigrants who are all believed to be over the age of 16. Police noted that they were all alive and none were in critical condition. However, one person has been taken to the hospital for further checks while the others have been taken into custody.

A man in his 50s has been arrested on suspicion of assisting with illegal entry and is in custody in Swindon.

This latest incident comes just shortly after eight people were arrested in connection with the 39 migrants found dead in a lorry in Essex. They were held on Sunday on suspicion of organising people smuggling overseas, the news site notes.
