Germany’s federal police force said on Monday that 11 migrants were found alive in a refrigerated truck at a service station in Bavaria, in the south-east of the country.

Police said that the migrants were all from Afghanistan and were aged between 14 and 31.

The 11 people are understood to have boarded the Turkish truck when it was loaded with fruit in Serbia, according to news agency dpa.

The migrants were found on Saturday by authorities after the driver of the truck heard knocking noises from the vehicle at a highway rest area near Passau, close to the Austrian border. Authorities said the passengers were suffering headaches and breathing problems in the back of the vehicle.

Police said that the driver of the truck assured them that he had not known about the passengers. The lorry was bound for Belgium.

There has been a number of instances in recent months were migrants have been found on the back of trucks crossing Europe.

In early November, 41 migrants were found alive in a refrigerated truck on a highway in northern Greece.

The month before, 39 Vietnamese migrants were found dead at the back of a refrigerated truck in Essex, south-east England.
