The men have been interviewed by immigration officers.

The arrests follow a tip off from a coach driver who spotted two people clambering out the luggage compartment of another coach parked at the visitor centre on Tuesday (April 23rd).

The driver approached an officer from Wiltshire Police who was there for an unrelated matter.

Two men, one a Sudanese national and the other a Kuwaiti national were arrested on suspicion of entering the UK illegally.

It's not known where the coach came from but the driver is understood to have spoken French.

The matter has now been passed to the UK Border Agency.

In a statement the Home Office confirmed:

"The men have been interviewed by immigration officers and their cases will be dealt with according to the immigration rules."
