Eleven suspected illegal immigrants arrested in Fordham on Friday have been released by police.

Police were called to Market Street at around 2.10pm following reports that a group of men had been seen looking lost in the village and not dressed appropriately for the weather.

Officers were told on their arrival by two of the men that they had travelled from Sudan and France.

Eleven men aged between 15 and 30 were arrested on suspicion of immigration offences and taken to a police investigation centre in King’s Lynn.

All 11 men were later released by police with no further action.
