A 16-year-old boy from Vietnam has been found in a suitcase at the Port of Dover.

UK Border Force officers discovered the suitcase in the boot of a silver Skoda Octavia at 8.30pm on Wednesday.

The boy’s condition was initially feared to be life-threatening, but he is now recovering.

Kent Police and the Crown Prosecution Service are investigating the incident.

It has led to Romanian Andrei Iancu, 20, being charged with attempting to smuggle a person into the UK contrary to immigration law.

He is in custody and is due to appear before Medway magistrates today (Friday).
