Three illegal immigrants who walked into county hotel seeking political asylum were arrested | Northampton Herald & Post

Three men from Eritrea who walked into the Holiday Inn in Flore asking for political asylum have been arrested by police.
This was one of the ten cases of illegal immigrants found in the county which Northamptonshire Police had to deal with on Wednesday.
Police dealt with the first case at 3.42am when they were called to Swan Valley where they found two illegal immigrants from Eritrea who had been hiding in the back of a lorry.
While police were there they found another man from the Sudan hiding in a lorry.
They also got a call at 6.33am of a man (who had illegally entered the county from the Sudan) walking down the hard shoulder of the M1 motorway near junction 15.
Both of the men were arrested by police
At 10.22am they had a call from the Holiday Inn at Flore as three men from Eritrea had walked into the hotel asking for political asylum.
They were also arrested.
Then at 11.20am, police were called to South View in Kislingbury where three men were wandering the streets.
All three it turned out were illegal immigrants.
Northamptonshire Police are advising lorry drivers if they hear stowaways in their vehicles to keep the doors closed until police arrive rather than deal with the situation themselves.
