Essex lorry driver charged with 39 counts of manslaughter and conspiracy to traffic people

So another person has now been arrested in connection with the 39 people found dead inside a lorry trailer in Essex – and this evening came the first charges – 25 year old Maurice Robinson, the driver of the truck, will appear in court on Monday to face four charges – including 39 counts of manslaughter and conspiracy to traffic people.

Earlier the Vietnamese ambassador to the UK met Essex police to help efforts to identify those who died – detectives say they are now investigating whether ‘wider conspiracies’ were involved.
