They were reported to have made enquiries at Biggleswade train station and at shops close by over how they could travel to London on the train.

A PCSO was called who distracted the group by making conversation while other police made their way to the area around the station.

The group were then arrested and were taken to a police station in Luton where they were later handed over to officers from the UK Border Agency.

It is believed that the men and woman were from Eritrea in East Africa.

Anyone who knows anything about any illegal immigrants who may be living in the area should contact Bedfordshire Police on the non-emergency number 101.
