Third Man Arrested Over Tilbury Dock Container Death

A third man's been arrested, following the death of a man found in a container at Tilbury Docks.

Police have arrested a third man on suspicion of manslaughter and facilitating illegal entry into the United Kingdom in connection with the Essex Police investigation into the death of a man found in a container at Tilbury Docks on Saturday August 16.

The man, aged 47, from Dungannon, in Northern Ireland, was arrested yesterday morning at Liverpool Ferry Port.

He's now been transferred into the custody of Essex Police.

Two other men have been charged in connection with the discovery of more than 30 immigrants in the container last month.
