This Woman Found An Immigrant In The Back Of Her Fiat Panda
This trip had a very unexpected ending.
I can't believe this happened, I just can't believe that this man got in my car. As I let the dogs out of the car, a leg protruded from behind my seats and a chap got out and said 'I'm an orphan, I'm an orphan', at which point I told him to get lost...This boy must have been 18 to 20. I don't know how he managed to fit in the car.My dog was going berserk but I thought she was looking for a ball, and I kept feeling somebody or something – somebody, now I know – nudge me in the back.I immediately called the police because I was more frightened about what he was going to do. I can't believe that it happened.
The news comes as the tunnel's managers prepare to issue guidelines to their customers on how to avoid a similar experience.

"We're telling them to be vigilant themselves, lock their cars and not park up in unlit areas."
