Australian singer stunned to discover two stowaways on her tour bus as she travelled to the UK
An Australian musician heading into the UK described the “heartbreaking” moment two stowaways were discovered on her tourbus.
Amy Shark, best known for her 2016 hit “Adore”, was travelling from Brussels to London when two people were found hidden in a storage compartment on Sunday evening.
Shark, whose real name is Amy Billings, told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation: “They didn’t threaten us or say a word – they just walked away when found.
She said it had given her crew a scare, but that she felt for those choosing a “dangerous way to chase a new life”.
SCARY. We just found two people hiding in our tour bus, in the luggage carrier, trying to sneak across the border into the UK. No idea how they got in there or who they are or their plans. I didn’t think this stuff happened I’m so naive hey. Everyone’s ok though 🤒

She wrote on Twitter that she had “no idea” how the pair had entered the bus. She did not say where they had exited.
“I didn’t think this stuff happened I’m so naive hey,” she wrote.
The singer is in the UK to play a short tour with dates in Manchester, Birmingham and London.
The discovery comes a month after Home Secretary Sajid Javid declared a state of emergency over the number of migrants attempting to illegally enter the UK by the Channel.
And earlier this month 40 migrants were detained in Kent after a number of attempted Channel crossings.
