Dog sniffs out illegal immigrants in coffins

Three would-be illegal immigrants were stopped from entering Britain after they was found by a sniffer dog inside a truck of coffins.

The truck was a Bulgarian registered vehicle carrying coffins that were for a funeral director in west London. The Truck was being checked over by UK immigration officials when one of the sniffer dogs alarmed them of the stowaways.

“This was an unusual type of discovery,” admitted Paul Morgan, the South East England and Europe director for the British Border Force.

British immigration officers work in ports in northern Europe. They regularly use sniffer dogs as part of their investigations.
