Suspicion has surfaced that at least six of the 39 people found dead in a lorry trailer in Essex, may have been from Vietnam.
Media reports have revealed details of six Vietnamese families, who fear their relatives are among the victims.
The victims of the trailer were 31 men and eight women, and the Essex Police initially said they were all believed to be Chinese.
However, at a press conference held last evening, Deputy Chief Constable: Pippa Mills said, she would not comment on any further details about the nationalities of the victims, until formal identification processes have taken place.
GPS data show the refrigerated container-trailer crossing back and forth between the UK and Europe, in the days before it was found.
The vehicle was leased from the company: ‘Global Trailer Rentals’, in mid-October. The Company says, it was entirely unaware that the trailer was to be used for such a purpose.
