The scale of the illegal immigration crisis is laid bare today as figures reveal at least 27,000 migrants have been arrested in the past four years after sneaking into the UK.

A total 28 police forces from the Met in London to Gwent in Wales, Thames Valley and North Yorkshire, have picked up migrants without “leave to enter”.

They were likely arrested after ‘lorry drops’, raids or found to be illegal after being nicked for committing a low-level crime.

The figures – from Freedom of Information Requests – show that across the 28 forces, an estimated 27,109 illegal immigrants have been arrested since the start of 2014.

A further 1,144 people have been nicked for “conspiring” to help someone breach UK immigration law - such as gangmasters.

Furious MPs and union leaders said the worrying figures proved the need for more investment in Britain’s porous borders ahead of Brexit.

Tory backbencher Philip Hollobone said: “These people should be stopped at the border it shouldn’t be up to police to arrest them.

“Something is clearly going wrong.”

Lucy Moreton of the ISU union for borders, immigration and customs workers said: “These figures aren’t really a surprise. There isn’t the odd hole at the border, it’s like a colander.

“People coming in on the back of a lorry, under a van and that’s before you think about the small ports and private airfields.
