A 27-year-old illegal immigrant has been arrested by police after he gave himself up to shocked staff at a medical centre in Lutterworth.

The bizarre incident happened as police were called to Lutterworth Medical Centre on Gilmorton Road, Lutterworth, just before 2pm yesterday (Monday).

Staff alerted police after the man “presented himself” to them and “claimed he had entered the country illegally”, said Leicestershire Police.

“The 27-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of being an illegal immigrant and referred to Immigration Services for further enquiries.”

Harborough police tweeted yesterday: “Lutterworth Police have just arrested an adult male from the medical centre in Lutterworth on suspicion of being an illegal immigrant into the UK.

“Pot Noodle for one, bed for the night, for Immigration to deal with tomorrow.”
