Spanish police find migrant in spare wheel well of car

Spanish police said Thursday they found a migrant hidden inside the spare wheel well of a car that arrived at the southern port of Algeciras by ferry from Morocco.

Police said in a statement that the female driver of the car became "very nervous and evasive" when they asked her to open the trunk of vehicle after it arrived from Tangiers.

In a video released by police an officer can be seen removing several pillows from the trunk and lifting a black cover to reveal a man dressed in shorts and a t-shirt curled up inside the wheel well.

Police said the man was a Moroccan national. The driver of the car, a Moroccan national who is legally resident in Spain, was detained.

In August, a 27-year-old Moroccan man suffocated to death while trying to illegally enter Spain hidden inside a suitcase in the trunk of a car that arrived by ferry in Almeria in southern Spain from Melilla, a tiny Spanish territory in north Africa.
