The BBC have now altered their article to say that the trailer arrived from Belgium rather than the vehicle. So it looks like the cab travelled from Ireland to pick it up.

Quote:
Essex Police said the trailer arrived via ferry from Zeebrugge, Belgium, into Purfleet on the River Thames.

The ship docked in the Thurrock area shortly after 00:30, the force said.

It is believed the container and lorry then left the port together about 35 minutes later.

Police say 39 victims found dead in truck near London were Chinese

From the article, the largest prior incident like this also involve Chinese nationals.

The driver of the lorry has been charged with manslaughter, people trafficking, immigration and money laundering offences...

Quote:
A lorry driver has been charged with the manslaughter of 39 people found dead inside a refrigerated trailer.

Maurice Robinson, 25, was arrested after the bodies of 31 men and eight women were found in Grays on Wednesday.

He is further charged with people trafficking, immigration and money laundering offences, Essex Police said.

Mr Robinson, of Laurel Drive, Craigavon, Northern Ireland, is due before Chelmsford Magistrates' Court on Monday.

Three others, a man and a woman, both 38 and from Warrington, Cheshire, and a 48-year-old man from Northern Ireland remain in police custody.

All were arrested on suspicion of manslaughter and conspiracy to traffic people.

A man in his 20s arrested by Irish police in Dublin was said to be "of interest" to the Essex force's investigation.

Apparently few of the victims are Vietnamese and many other from Fujian according to Finland's main rag Helsinsky Sanomansky.

So my guess about Uyghurs was wrong.
