    Hey, I've got a question for you. I've been caught with entrants in my truck. I had no idea they were there. Now I have a penalty in the UK. I'm thinking of appealing. Have any of you experienced something similar and what did you do?

    Nothing to see here; move along.

    Road transport companies and their drivers must secure vehicles coming into the UK to stop ‘clandestine entrants’. A clandestine entrant is a person who hides in or on a vehicle to avoid going through UK border control.

    If you don’t secure your vehicle, and you’re found carrying clandestine entrants into the UK, you’ll get a fine (also known as a ‘civil penalty’).

    You face a fine of up to £2,000 for each clandestine entrant you carry. The vehicle’s driver, owner or hirer can be fined.

    The law applies to all arrivals into the UK, including from European sea ports and on the Eurotunnel Shuttle.
