Philip Hammond, the UK’s Foreign Secretary, has accused African migrants seeking a better life in Europe of undermining the continent’s “standard of living”.

Speaking during a visit to Singapore, Mr Hammond said Britain’s “number one priority” was to find a way to make it easier to send would-be asylum seekers back where they came from, adding that Europe could not “absorb millions of migrants from Africa”.

He told BBC News that in many cases migrants knew they only needed to set foot in the EU to be confident they would never be forced to leave.

Mr Hammond made his comments as 17 suspected “illegal immigrants” were found in a single “suspicious” lorry travelling on the M1 near St Albans.

Police officers stopped a lorry on the M1 motorway after a member of the public alerted them to “suspicious activity” involving the vehicle.

Upon searching the interior, they found 17 people, who they suspect may have entered the UK without authorisation.

The lorry driver, a 40-year-old Polish man, was arrested on suspicion of helping people enter the country illegally. source- independent.
