The container has arrived from Belgium so i guess they are illegal immigrants.

And I guess some enterprising scumbag took money from those people to arrange their transport!

I wonder how long they have been crammed into the container and where it has come from ?

Possibly those people had managed to be slipped into one of the Schengen area countries and moved relatively freely to Belgium.

There was a dreadful case back in 2001.

It doesn't bear thinking about what they must have gone through.

Essex Police described the men, women and children - all believed to be from the Indian subcontinent - as victims of "people trafficking".

Police 'Confident' In Hunt For Container Lorry

Interpol joins the hunt for suspected people smugglers after 35 people were found inside a shipping container in Essex.

Belgian police say they are almost certain they have CCTV images of the lorry and driver that dropped a container carrying 35 immigrants at a UK-bound ferry.

Crews discovered the group - thought to be victims of human trafficking - when "banging and screaming" was heard at Tilbury Docks in Essex.

One man was found dead and others were rushed to hospital suffering from severe dehydration and hypothermia.

Interpol and other international forces are now helping Essex Police trace the lorry's route across Europe and find the suspected traffickers.

Peter De Waele, a spokesman for Belgium's federal police, told Sky News that detectives were checking "every image" of CCTV from Zeebrugge port.

"We have a lot of cameras and we are very hopeful for having information about identification of the driver.

"When you know that in this area there are a lot of cameras, you know also that we have plenty of information about the truck and the driver, and the firm who put the container in Zeebrugge."

Mr De Waele said the container was only at the busy port for about an hour and police believe the victims were probably already inside when it arrived.

Essex Police have launched a "homicide" investigation after the death of the male immigrant and detectives said charges could include murder or manslaughter.

Superintendent Trevor Roe said the probe would "span a number of countries".

Seven ambulances rushed the immigrants to three different hospitals when the alarm was raised early on Saturday morning.

Among them, 18 were taken to Basildon Hospital with dehydration and hypothermia, two in a serious but not life-threatening condition.

The hospital has now said the group - which included seven children - are "medically fit enough" to be released.

I must be getting very cynical in my old age....I know these people are probably desperate but it's amazing how they got an ambulance within 11 minutes and didn't wait on a trolley in ER for 12 hours. A lot of people who live in this country haven't been so lucky.

A few days ago, I was visiting someone in sheltered accommodation when the fire alarm went off. I went to find out if it was a practice and found that it wasn't and reported back that all residents were to stay in heir flats. I was told that the fire service had been automatically alerted. 15 minutes later as I left, no sign of fire engine, so it was just as well that it did not seem to be a serious fire.

The people found in the shipping container are Afghan Sikhs.

Tilbury Docks container stowaways 'Sikhs from Afghanistan'

A group of 35 men, women and children found inside a shipping container at a port are understood to be Sikhs from Afghanistan, Essex Police say.

One man was found dead when they were discovered on Saturday morning after a freighter arrived at Tilbury Docks from Belgium.

The police force has described them as victims of "people trafficking".

Andy Moore reports.

I wouldn't have imagined that there would be a large Sikh community in Afghanistan, but I could understand why Sikhs would want to get out of there!

I heard on Radio 4 yesterday that there have been Sikhs in Afghanistan for hundreds of years, but whereas there were once over 200 Gurdwaras, there is now 1 in the whole country.
