A rock band returning to Britain in their tour bus after performing in France found an illegal immigrant hidden in a guitar case.
The members of Wille and the Bandits, a blues rock three piece, were filling up their vehicle just outside of Calais on Sunday when they discovered two migrants in the back.
One of the pair had secreted himself inside a case for one of the band's instruments.
Posting on their Facebook page the band said:
Wille and the Bandits, based in Cornwall, has been named as one of Britain's brightest young bands and were voted into the top 10 "must see" acts at Glastonbury 2014 by BBC Radio One.
After members announced they were to go on a BBC local radio station to tell the story of their encounter, one friend Jan Davies posted: "Fame, but for all the wrong reasons!"
The band had spent several weeks on tour in Europe with appearances in Germany, Belgium and Switzerland. Photo: Apex News
