In Paris, a broker took me to Calais, where I got into the back of a lorry and hid under the containers. When I got to England, I gave myself up to the police and claimed asylum. I was told you get more respect here.

England is nothing like I expected. I have had a terrible time. Not in a million years did I think I would be in prison here. They want to send me back to Italy, even though Italy refused me asylum.”
