Police described the attempt to pass undetected as ‘unique and innovative’.

An ingenious illegal immigrant who disguised as a car seat in order to gain entrance into Spain has been caught by Guardia Civil officers.

The 20-year-old man from Guinea was hidden inside a Renault 7’s passenger seat, with the co-driver sat on top of him while attempting to sneak into the Spanish enclave of Melilla from Morocco over the Beni-Enzar crossing on Friday.

The insides of the seat had been discarded, leaving only the frame which he slid into. The security officers had to help the man out of his hiding place.

Although arrested, the security respected the Guinean’s ingenuity describing his attempt to pass undetected as ‘unique and innovative’.

The immigrant’s accomplices, two Moroccan men, aged 21 and 23, who allegedly tried to smuggle him across the border were arrested and will appear before a court accused of people smuggling later this week.

The man was also detained and appeared before a judge. He has now been expelled from the enclave.
