More than 50 migrants including 21 children were found piled into the back of lorry in Mexico, after officials used an X-ray scanner at a checkpoint.

Shocking footage shows 51 people, mostly from Central America, cramped into the back of the transit lorry.

It comes just a week after the White House released similar footage showing 35 migrants crossing into Arizona.

The group, from Ecuador, Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador and Nicaragua, are now being held in custody in Mexico’s National Migration Institute (INM), government officials said.

They will be returned to their home countries.

It comes as Mexican officials have captured more than 200 migrants hidden in trucks over the past two days, including dozens spotted by a large X-ray scanner huddled in secret compartments.

The country is cracking down on migration under pressure from the US.

An additional 228 hidden migrants were found in a routine search of a soft drink transportation truck in the southern state of Chiapas on Monday, Mexico’s security ministry said in a statement.

The apprehensions come weeks after the appointment of hard-charging former prisons chief Francisco Garduno as the new head of Mexico’s immigration authority, the National Migration Institute (INM).
