UK police have launched a murder investigation after 39 people were found dead in a truck container at an industrial park in Essex, 30 kilometers east of London. One of the victims was in their teens.
Authorities believe the truck, which they say originated in Bulgaria, entered the UK through the Welsh port of Holyhead over the weekend. A regular ferry service connects Holyhead with the Irish capital, Dublin.
A 25-year-old Northern Irish truck driver was arrested "on suspicion of murder" after the bodies were discovered at the Waterglade Industrial Park in Grays early on Wednesday morning, Essex Police said.
