GRAYS (England): Residents of the English town of Grays, 20 miles east of London, said their hearts were “broken” after 39 people, including a teenager, were found dead in a truck at an industrial park Wednesday.

Eastern Avenue, a street in the heart of the usually-bustling industrial area, was closed off after ambulance workers made the discovery and called police around 1:40 a.m.
Police said the container arrived at a nearby town after traveling from the Belgian port city of Zeebrugge early Wednesday before it was transported by the truck to Waterglade Industrial Park.
Police have not yet identified the 39 victims or their nationalities, however, a 25-year-old truck driver from Northern Ireland was arrested on suspicion of murder.
Paul Berry, a local councilor for Armagh in Northern Ireland, identified the driver as Morris Robinson. Berry told CNN he learned of the arrest after speaking with Robinson’s father.
