UKBA crushes people smuggler

Sometimes you just can’t make it up. The UK Border Agency has posted a video on YouTube of it crushing a van used by people smugglers.

As I understand it, the nine Kuwaiti migrants were removed first. So were the people smugglers. Although it doesn’t actually explicitly say so anywhere in the press release. Indeed, Regional Director, Simon Walker at the UK Border Agency is quoted as saying

Immigration abuse will not be tolerated, and we will always take the strongest possible action against those involved.

This really is getting tough.
