It would appear (from the Argus - pasted below) that Lewes is so popular, that illegal immigrants are trying to enter the town too.
Four illegal immigrants have been arrested after being spotted climbing out of the back of a lorry.
They were part of a group of men seen by dozens of motorists as they clambered out of a foreign registered HGV stopped on the A27 near Lewes, at 4.30pm yesterday.
The lorry was near to Newhaven Port, where it was believed to have crossed the border.
The four men, described as Middle Eastern, were later found by Sussex Police in Ham Street, Lewes, after a large number of 999 calls.
They were arrested on suspicion of entering the UK illegally and taken into custody at Eastbourne Police Station.
The force said it had informed officials from the Border and Immigration Agency who would be taking charge of the investigation.
It is believed some men may have escaped from the HGV before police could intervene.
A senior Sussex Police officer said: "There may well have been more."
In August French lorry driver Marc Raymond Audouard was arrested after 24 illegal Chinese immigrants were discovered in his vehicle as it arrived in Newhaven port.
Some of the stowaways were minutes from death when they were discovered after being exposed to a build up of lethal carbon monoxide fumes.
Newhaven was highlighted earlier this year as a potential weak point in the UK border which had been exploited by dozens of immigrants.
