AN illegal immigrant has been arrested after trying to enter Spain disguised as a car seat.

The 20-year-old man, from Guinea, was hidden inside the frame of a Renault 7’s passenger seat with another man sitting on top of him.

The audacious act, described by police as ‘unique and innovative’, was discovered at the border between Morocco and the Spanish enclave of Melilla.

The man has now been expelled from Melilla, while two Moroccan men accused of helping him, aged 21 and 23, will appear before court accused of people smuggling.
