AN ILLEGAL immigrant stayed under the radar for 13 years after being smuggled into the UK in the back of a lorry before he was finally caught.
Sohan Dhillon had been here so long he had even carved himself out a tax-free job earning thousands as a builder.
Yet when police and Border Agency staff raided a house in Walker, Newcastle, his cover was finally blown . . .yet even then Dhillon nearly slipped through the net after giving a false name and producing a stolen passport.
Now he has been jailed for eight months for possessing an identification document with an improper intention.
However he has served 107 days on remand, meaning he will be released almost immediately unless the Home Office decide to deport him.
