Essex police say the force has not yet identified the 39 victims or where they came from.

Deputy police chief Pippa Mills said identification "could be a lengthy process" and that a key line of inquiry will be how the truck entered Ireland. It is believed to have traveled from Ireland to Holyhead in Wales on Saturday via ferry.

She refused to describe the gender of the victims.

Seamus Leheny, Northern Ireland policy manager for the Freight Transport Association, said the route that had been used was "unorthodox" since it apparently involved traveling to Ireland and then entering Britain via a ferry to a major passenger port in Wales.

He said that choice may have been influenced by increased security and checks in the major English port of Dover and the French port of Calais.

"People have been saying that security and checks have been increased at places like Dover and Calais, so it might be seen as an easier way to get in by going from Cherbourg or Roscoff, over to Rosslare, then up the road to Dublin," he said.

"It's a long way around and it'll add an extra day to the journey."

Richard Burnett, chief of the Road Haulage Association, said the truck may have traveled from the French port of Cherbourg to the Irish port of Rosslare before continuing by road to Dublin and taking a ferry to Holyhead in Wales.

He said it is "highly unlikely" the vehicle would have been subjected to a physical check if it had taken that route because those ports have far fewer checks then Dover and Calais, where there are sniffer dogs, monitors, and more advanced technological surveillance.

One of Johnson’s most trusted advisers from his time as London mayor, Lister is a stark contrast to the other central figure in Johnson’s administration, Dominic Cummings, an anarchic force of nature consumed by Brexit.
