ESSEX POLICE ARE ASKING FOR INFORMATION FROM THE PUBLIC

Essex Police where called to a container lorry in West Thurrock in the early hours of Wednesday 23rd October 2019.  On arrival a number of bodies were found and Essex Police are looking for any information of how these bodies came to be in the back of this vehicle. As our investigation progresses, we are keen to hear from anyone who has knowledge of two similar journeys that haulage vehicles made to Purfleet on Friady 11th and Friday 18th October 2019. It is believed that lorries were used to facilitate the unlawful entry of people into the Country via Purfleet.  We believe that these people, or anyone who had knowledge of the journeys, has crucial information to assist or inquiry
