Belgian authorities believe they have identified the lorry which delivered the container to the Zeebrugge port after inspecting the site and scouring CCTV for clues, the BBC reported, though it is still not known where the lorry came from. Chief Inspector Peter De Waele from the Belgian police said:

The Belgian civil police is checking all the images and my colleagues are very, very hopeful that we find the truck who put the container in Zeebrugge. I think it is very, very important that we have the identification of that truck and also of the driver.
