A man has been arrested in connection with the deaths of 39 Vietnamese nationals in Essex.

The bodies of the nationals were discovered by emergency services at an industrial estate in Grays shortly after the lorry arrived on a ferry from Zeebrugge in Belgium in the early hours of October 23 last year.

Among the men, women and children were ten teenagers, two of them 15-year-old boys.

Maurice 'Mo' Robinson, 25, of Craigavon in Northern Ireland pleaded guilty to manslaughter at the Old Bailey.

A 42-year-old man from Tottenham, has been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to facilitate the entry of non-EU citizens into the UK.
