Swimmer caught in port

Port of Algeciras
ALGECIRAS (Agencies) A man was caught yesterday swimming with great difficulty in the waters of the port in Algeciras. He managed to reach the new stairway installed recently, that lead to the Llano Amarillo parking lot. He was intercepted by the police and arrested for illegal immigration. His final stretch was no less dangerous than the way he would probably have arrived in the first place:  throwing himself off a boat or a ferry to swim the last few yards, or underneath a lorry transporting produce from Morocco, clinging perilously to the undercarriage until deciding to avoid the customs area and heading off to sea in the hope of reaching land and not getting caught. This man's dream of a better life came to an end on Saturday at midday.
