Two men have been arrested on suspicion of entering the UK illegally after officers pulled over a lorry transporting Ferraris.
The stowaways were found by police on Wednesday just before 1pm on the M25 at junction 29.
After telling officers they were from Iraq, the men were taken to Romford Police station for further questioning.
An Essex Police spokesman said: “Police were called to reports of people in the back of a lorry on the M25 at around 12.55pm.
“Officers attended and two people were arrested.”
Border Force UK officers have now taken on the case and will probe whether the two men have the right to be in Britain or not.
