I hope my D never has to be faced with anything like this as her job is to check vehicles coming and going to/from NI . Stena do these sailings to/from Holyhead and Birkenhead. That lorry clearly wasn't checked .
I am actually crying here. For the love of God, these are our fellow human beings, Mums, Dads, somebodys mate they played with , somebodys school friend. Not statistics or people trying to sneek into the Promised Land.
Awful, the truck was a sealed refrigerated container , the oxygen would not last long. According to the BBC the truck came from Ireland via Holyhead, the customs checks there are not as strict as Dover and with convincing paperwork didn’t get checked. The driver probably had no idea, to him it was just another truck, wether the traffickers are ever caught is doubtful.
