Police and ambulance crews were called at 1.40am following the discovery of thirty-nine people dead inside a container at an industrial park in Essex. All 39 people were declared dead at the scene in Waterglade Industrial Park in Grays. The driver, a 25 year-old man from Northern Ireland, has since been arrested on suspicion of murder.
