Operators pay the penalty for increase in stowaways

It is estimated that operators faced £10m worth of fines last year as a result of stowaways being detected onboard vehicles. 

The Home Office has said that over 39,000 illegal immigrants were caught trying to enter the UK in the year up to April 2015 – more than twice as much as the previous year. 

As a result of the increase in stowaway cases, vehicle camera firm SmartWitness has said that sales of its in-cab camera this year have increased by 20 per cent.
