Arrests in connection with alleged people smuggling attempt

Officers from the National Crime Agency have today (July 26) arrested two men, foreign nationals aged 31 and 44, in the Leyton area of London.

The arrests were in connection to an ongoing investigation into an attempted illegal facilitation of migrants into the UK from France using a light aircraft which took place on Monday 17 July.

The arrests follow collaborative work between the NCA and its law enforcement partners in France.

Anyone with information about suspicious activity involving light aircraft or small airfields should contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 or contact police on 101, quoting Project Pegasus.
