    35 people found in shipping container in Essex

    One man has died and dozens have been taken to hospital after a group of stowaways were discovered in a shipping container in Essex.

    One man has died and dozens have been taken to hospital after 35 people were discovered inside a shipping container at Tilbury Docks in Essex on Saturday.

    The group, presumed to be illegal immigrants, were found when a ship was unloaded at 6.30am. Police said they included "adults and children of both genders", adding that some were suffering from “significant health problems”.

    Seven ambulances were immediately called to the scene. In addition, Basildon and Thurrock Hospital dispatched two rapid response cars, a patient transport services vehicle and a “hazardous area response team”.

    Well spotted Angie. For once, you found this out before I  did.

    I did see it on the national news.

    It is certainly awful that such a thing could happen.

    I guess that the victims of this outrage will be too scared to talk.

    The news reported yesterday that they had two guys in custody for this crime.

    I agree that if proven guilty they should be locked up and the key thrown away.
