Spanish police have broken up a gang trying to smuggle Iranian migrants into Britain via the Canary Islands, arresting 22 people.

The migrants, charged up to 20,000 euros for the journey, were transported by air or overland by lorry and in luggage compartments of buses.

Police also recovered fake passports at the home of the alleged ringleader.

The Spanish authorities launched their investigation in February, with the arrest of a suspect attempting to board a flight from Tenerife to the UK with forged identification.
