#PeopleHidden - A truck with some 14 people writes Independent.ie were found hidden having arrived by ferry at Rosslare Harbour on Sunday afternoon.

Garda Immigration Officers discovered the 12 men and two women during a routine search after the ship from France docked around 2pm.

The people were found inside a refrigerated trailer unit aboard the Irish Ferries Oscar Wilde ferry.

It is understood that apples were being transported in the truck and the temperature of the unit was around 5 degrees.

Never mind roll on, this lorry nearly rolled off! A truck driver is alleged to have forgotten to apply his brake aboard the Acciona Trasmediterranea roro ferry 'Alboran', operating between the Spanish towns of Algeciras and Ceuta. Whatever the reason for the runaway lorry, as the above vid shows, the fast ferry docks with the cab of the truck sticking out of the stern of the ship! 

The extended vid below shows how the ships crew eventually got the lorry off the ship
