A 44-year-old man from Spain has been arrested on suspicion of human trafficking after people were seen getting out of a lorry on a motorway.

People were seen exiting a lorry on the hard shoulder of the M2 north of Maidstone in Kent on Saturday, police said.

The motorway was shut while officers investigated.
