Twelve migrants have been found alive in a refrigerated truck in northern Belgium.

The men, who were originally from Syria and Sudan, were discovered by police in a motorway parking area outside Antwerp.

Officers went to the scene after the driver of the vehicle, which was carrying fruit and vegetables, alerted authorities.

The group has now been taken to an immigration office in the city.

It comes a week after 39 migrants were found dead in the back of a lorry in Essex.

Police launched an investigation after the bodies of eight women and 31 men were discovered in a refrigerated trailer at the Waterglade Retail Park in Grays in the early hours of Wednesday.

A refrigerated truck carrying eight migrants was discovered by French authorities on Sunday in the northern port city of Calais. Four adults and four children, who said they were from Afghanistan, were taken to the hospital for treatment after showing signs of hypothermia after riding in the vehicle.

34 illegal African migrants were locked in a refrigerated truck for two days in eastern Tripoli, Libya. 7 of them died from what appeared to be suffocation.

Belgian officials said the trailer came from Zeebrugge last Tuesday and was picked up by a lorry cab in Purfleet, Essex at about 12.30am the following day.

Two brothers are wanted on suspicion of manslaughter over the 39 deaths.

Ronan Hughes, 40, and Christopher Hughes, 34, both from Armagh in Northern Ireland, are also wanted on suspicion of human trafficking, Essex Police said.

The older brother also goes by the name Rowan, and both have links to the Republic of Ireland as well as Northern Ireland.

Essex Police are now investigating whether a lorry cab seized at Dublin Port by Irish police was the lorry that delivered the refrigerated trailer to Zeebrugge port last Tuesday with the 39 people on board.

They confirmed a man was arrested by Irish police over an unconnected matter and he "is a person of interest" in their investigation into the deaths.

On Monday, another man, lorry driver Maurice "Mo" Robinson, 25, of Craigavon, Northern Ireland, appeared at Chelmsford Magistrates' Court charged with 39 counts of manslaughter, conspiracy to traffic people, conspiracy to assist unlawful immigration, and money laundering.

He is due to appear at the Old Bailey on 25 November.
