Three held as van overturns on M11

Police have arrested two men on suspicion of people trafficking after a van overturned on a motorway.

A 15-year-old was taken to hospital with injuries which are not believed to be serious.

The two men were arrested after their van, towing a caravan, crashed shortly after 5am on the northbound M11 in Essex, between junction 8 for Stansted and junction 9 for Great Chesterford.

The 42-year-old and 19-year-old, both from Poland, were also arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving.

A third man, a 29-year-old also from Poland, was arrested on suspicion of immigration offences.

All men remain in custody being questioned by detectives.
