39 bodies have been discovered by authorities in the container of an industrial truck this morning in Essex, a southeastern area of England. The truck and bodies were found in Waterglade Industrial Park around 1:40 AM, and medics on the sight declared all 39 bodies, 38 being adults and one being a teenager.
The 25-year-old driver of the truck was arrested on suspicion of the murder, although authorities haven’t identified him, he is from Northern Ireland. British police believe that the container originated from Holyhead, a port city in Wales. So far, the bodies have also not been identified.
Politicians both in the United Kingdom and around the globe have offered the condolences for the matter. The investigation is ongoing although there is a lack of evidence at the scene.
