Last week three men were rescued from the back of a refrigerated lorry in Brampton, Cambridgeshire, after telephoning police to say they were "suffocating" inside.

Officers asked people to look out for the "warning signs" of potential trafficking including hearing banging from the inside of a lorry, things being thrown from lorries in order to grab the attention of other motorists, or groups of people trying to get in to lorries, or emerging from them.
