A suspected stowaway who was found perched precariously beside the rear propeller of a passenger ferry has been arrested in Spain.

The 48-year-old Algerian man was detained for alleged illegal entry to the country as the boat docked in Tarifa from the Moroccan port of Tangiers.

Carrying a small plastic bag of belongings, he had intended to swim ashore once near the coast.
