Two Men Found Guilty Of Manslaughter Of 39 People In Essex Lorry Deaths

Two men have been found guilty of the manslaughter of 39 Vietnamese men, women and children, who died while being smuggled into the UK in a lorry, which was later discovered in Essex.

Gheorghe Nica, 43, and Eamonn Harrison, 24 were found guilty of the crime at the Old Bailey.

The shocking incident took place in October 2019, when the bodies of 28 men, eight women and three children were discovered in a lorry container at an industrial estate in Grays, Essex.

The victims were travelling in a sealed container from Zeebrugge, Belgium to the UK. There was insufficient oxygen and temperatures rose as high as 38.5°C. They died from asphyxia and hyperthermia (overheating).
