VIDEO: Migrants try to enter Spain hidden in mattresses

Desperate to get into Europe any way they can, two Sub Saharan African migrants were apprehended over the weekend trying to enter Spain hidden inside a mattress.

A video shot on a mobile phone shows Guardia Civil agents taking two mattresses off the roof of a van, putting them on the ground and then using a knife to open them up and discover the two young men hiding inside.

According to the Associated Press, the Guardia Civil said that the two men were taken to a migrant holding centre in Melilla, one of two Spanish enclaves on the North African coast.

The men both looking for a better life in Europe told the police that they had paid smugglers to get them into Spain.

The driver of the vehicle fled on foot and was later arrested by the authorities.
