SHOCKING DISCOVERY Disturbing moment parents find migrants hiding in coach full of kids returning to UK from school trip to France

 Parents dismayed to find out what happened to their children's belongings

This is the moment terrified parents spotted migrants hiding in a coach full of their children returning from a school trip to France.

The stowaways were searched in the luggage hold when they arrived home from the three-day trip.

When the hold was opened after the journey back to the UK, two men, both aged in their 20s, were found hidden among the luggage.

A mother waiting to collect her child said the incident at Hounsdown School, in Totton, Hants, was 'horrible'.

One of the men tried to run away but was stopped by parents who were told that a child's belongings were stained with urine.

The coach was carrying 9th and 10th grade students who had returned from a three-day school trip to the University of Boulogne, about 20 miles south of Calais. The teachers and pupils had traveled home in coaches through the Eurotunnel in Calais, and were returning. Totton, near Southampton, on Saturday evening.

Describing the moment they were found, a mother said: “[My son's] belongings were soaked in urine and his belongings were scattered after a man ran over them.

“I asked him (in French) if he spoke English or French and he answered French, I was about to ask him where he came from, but the teachers shooed me away.”

After this discovery, she panicked and her only thought was to snatch her 14-year-old son's belongings from the coach. She said: “The only way I can describe it is a state of panic.

“One of my goals was to get my child off the bus, and once I got off I went back because the kids were being asked to take their stuff off the bus which I couldn't stand.

"I just said 'excuse-moi' to the gentleman and bent over him to take out the rest of the bag because my son's bag was hidden under it."

Posting on social media, another parent said: “Just picked up my daughter from a school trip to France. To take out the suitcase, the coach driver opened the bottom of it and found that the immigrants were sitting there.

Many parents who witnessed this incident have spoken about their shock.

One wrote online: “I am outraged by this. They got access to a bogie carrying school children.

"It's one thing to get into a lorry but it's quite another to get into a coach without looking."

He further said, "When the children went forward to collect their bags, they were very surprised to see a person sitting there."

Another parent said: “My son is very upset, bless him, he has asked me to cancel his schooling next year and said he will wait until he is older to go Couldn't pay for.

[My son's] belongings were filled with urine and his belongings were scattered after a man ran over him.

"Poor guy... even after such an incredible journey! The teachers couldn't have done a better job the whole time, I really feel for them right now."

Hampshire Police confirmed that officers were present but no arrests were made.

A spokesperson for the force said: “Just before 05:15pm on Saturday, February 10 we were called to reports that two people, who were possibly illegal immigrants, were found at Hounsdown School in Totton.

“Officials have attended. No arrests have been made."

It comes as Rishi Sunak last week accepted a £1000 bet from Piers Morgan that deportation flights to Rwanda would start before the election.

The Prime Minister was confronted by the TalkTV host, who told him: “I'll bet you £1,000 a refugee charity won't get anyone on those planes before the election. Would you make that bet?
