The two men were found as they attempted to make it across the Moroccan border into Melilla, a Spanish enclave on the North African coast.

border security cut through plastic wrapping and fabric after lifting the mattresses from the roof of a van.

Two men then emerge from inside as guards watch on in the footage, which was shared on the Twitter page of Spanish senator Jon Inarritu.

Inarritu tweeted: "As long as there are no safe routes to request asylum, situations like this will continue to occur in the southern border of Europe."

the two men were reportedly safe and in no need for medical assistance.
