The first 11 bodies of the 39 found in the back of a lorry in Grays yesterday are being transported under police escort by private ambulance from the Port of Tilbury to Broomfield Hospital in Chelmsford.

The process of victim recovery under the DVI process is likely to take some time.

The next stages will be for post-mortem examinations to be carried out. This is all being done in liaison with HM Coroner and police continue to ensure the dignity of the victims is of primary consideration.
