Stowaways make a Grand entrance

Two migrants boarded a lorry bound for Silverstone in Calais

Two migrant stowaways ended up being fast-tracked into the British Grand Prix paddock after clambering on board a truck belonging to a Ferrari Formula One team supplier that was waiting to enter Britain.

A team spokeswoman said the pair were discovered as the truck was unloaded at Silverstone on Wednesday and handed over to Police

The stowaways were believed to have boarded near the French port of Calais.

This weekend's grand prix is a sellout, with a record crowd of more than 140,000 expected on Sunday with Lewis Hamilton leading the championship for Mercedes from his team-mate Valtteri Bottas.
