39 people, including 8 Women, migrating from China to Britain, in a truck. On Wednesday, October 23, in Northern Ireland, they were discovered frozen inside the lorry when it reached Essex.
Police are inspecting whether these individuals were being trafficked into the UK, through the Ireland route or if there was some criminal gang involved in the case, that must be effective in the UK, and they were carrying those people to trade them as slaves or workers in clubs, salons, and studios.
The police have discovered out that there were 8 women inside, including an adult girl who seemed quite young. The truck traveled 5000 miles starting from china, until at Ireland, where the truck was parked having dead bodies within.
The truck driver Mr. Mo Robinson, who is 25 years of age, and lived with his family at Co Armagh, was searched and held up last night and he is being interrogated about the killing of those 39 individuals in his truck.
The forces are trying to find out whether Robinson was aware of the presence of people inside his truck or not. It was the driver who contacted the ambulance at 1:40 A.M when he parked at an industrial area to get some documents from inside the truck. As he unlocked the door, he found those dead bodies inside. He immediately contacted the ambulance who then informed the police.
It was found out that the temperature inside the closed cabin was below 25C and the people died because of freezing.
