A Moroccan migrant has crossed the Mediterranean hiding in the turbine of a ferry engine.

The 20-year-old travelled from Tangier wearing a wetsuit, intending to swim ashore as the ship neared the Spanish coast.

But he was intercepted by police when the ferry arrived at the port of Tarifa near Cadiz.

He was arrested and taken to an immigration detention centre.
