Horror as THIRTY-NINE bodies – including one teenager – are found in a lorry container in Essex four days after it entered UK as driver, 25, from Northern Ireland is arrested in one of Britain’s biggest-ever murder probes

Police have launched one of the UK’s biggest ever murder probes after the bodies of 39 people, including one teenager, were found in the back of a lorry in Essex.

An ambulance crew made the horrific discovery after they were called to the Waterglade Industrial Park near the Dartford Crossing in the early hours of this morning.

The Scania lorry is originally from Bulgaria and had entered the UK at the Welsh port of Holyhead, Wales, where ferries arrive from Ireland.

The trailer is thought to be refrigerated, meaning those on board could have frozen to death while trying to get into Britain through the ‘weak point’ of Ireland.
