LONDON: Police have caught an Eritrean migrant who was hiding in a suitcase on a train after attempting to sneak his way from Italy into the UK.

The six-foot (1.8 metre) man had squeezed himself into a rather small-sized suitcase before being ‘taken’ onto a train in Italy. But he couldn’t escape eagle-eyed cops.

The passengers alerted the authorities when they heard strange noise coming from the suitcase.

The man spent about 45 minutes inside the suitcase before trying to extricate himself out of the claustrophobic luggage.

The man and his traveller friend were caught without documents and sent back to Italy by border officials.
