(Scroll down for video) A man smuggled himself in Europe, and thought he reached freedom, only to be handed over to police by a woman, according to a BBC report.

When a mother of six children returned home from the Tesco supermarket, she found a young man sitting in her driveway.

Jacky Goodfellow questioned the man and learned that he was an illegal, who has just reached the village of Elvington, near Dover, Kent.

She gave the 23-year-old man food and chatted with him while her daughter called the police.

“He was a nice young man, but obviously he should not be here,” Goodfellow said.

The man, who is from Eritrea and speaks English, said that he had a degree in science and wanted to seek asylum in the United Kingdom, so he can be a teacher.

He explained that he walked from Africa to France. There he hid under a truck and went unnoticed by sniffer dogs at the port of Calais.

The migrant crossed the channel on a ferry and then got off the truck near a field. He walked to Elvington in the hope of finding a police station where he can seek asylum.

The 23-year-old man will be handed over to the custody of the Home Office Immigration Enforcement.
