An LBC investigation has uncovered a major human trafficking ring headed, by a Muslim named Farook (right), who that claims French police are in collusion with them to get the predominantly Muslim illegals into the UK. Farooq charges £7,000 for a place on a boat and claims to have sent 300 to 400 illegals to the UK in boats.
An undercover team for LBC infiltrated the criminal gang, operating out of Dunkirk in the north of France. He covertly filmed the gang, based in Dunkirk, London and Birmingham, who claimed that French police assist them getting people across the Channel.
They said authorities tell them not to cross one day, but to come back the next – possibly due to the waters being patrolled by the UK Border Force. Posing as an Indian family wanting to bring a young relative to the UK, they met Farooq in his camp deep in the woods and off the beaten track in Dunkirk.
Watch what happens when Farook is confronted at a pizza shop in Dunkirk about his illegal snuggling operation. LBC reporter Rachael Venables asks him to comment on the evidence and he makes a desperate run for it.
