It is alleged that the four men were part of a crime group attempting to smuggle migrants from mainland Europe into the UK.

They appeared before magistrates in Nottingham today and have been remanded in custody until their next appearance at Nottingham Crown Court on 29 March.

All four were arrested yesterday as part of an NCA investigation into a group suspected of organising a series of people smuggling runs to the UK from Europe, including a number of crossing events last year.
