Thirteen men have been found in the back of an oversea lorry at a service station in Warwickshire, police said.

Video obtained by LBC shows a large group of males being aided by emergency services on the A45 in Rugby.

Three of the men have been taken to hospital after suffering heat exhaustion, West Midlands Amublance Service said.

Officers were called at 2pm to the Mangrove Service Station where they discovered the men inside the lorry.

The driver has been arrested on suspicion of people trafficking.

The Border Agency has been informed and the remaining men were taken into custody.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: "Crews arrived to discover 13 patients who had been travelling on the back of a lorry.

"All of the patients were male, with three of them receiving treatment at the scene for signs of heat exhaustion before they were transferred to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire on land ambulances.

"None of the injuries are thought to be serious."
