Essex: Police are questioning four people over the killing of 39 people whose bodies were recovered in a lorry in British city of Essex.

Deputy Chief Constable Pippa Mills: said in a statement: "This is a fast-moving investigation involving significant police resources dedicated to finding out the truth about what happened to the 39 people found dead in the lorry on Wednesday."

Speaking on the fresh arrest made, he said: "A 48 year-old man from Northern Ireland was arrested at Stansted Airport earlier today on suspicion of conspiracy to traffic people and on suspicion of manslaughter."

“It follows the arrests of a 38 year-old man and a 38 year-old woman from Warrington during warrants executed in Cheshire overnight. They are currently in custody also on suspicion of conspiracy to traffic people and on suspicion of manslaughter," he said.

“A 25 year-old man arrested on Wednesday on suspicion of murder remains in custody," the cop said.
