Third Man Charged Over Tilbury Dock Death

A third man has been charged in connection with the death of an Afghan immigrant found in a shipping container at Tilbury Docks.

40-year-old Meet Singh Kapoor was found with 34 other people back in August.

This morning (Sunday 7th August) police charged Martin McGlinchey of Co Tyrone with conspiring to facilitate illegal entry into the United Kingdom.

The 47-year-old has been remanded in custody to appear before Basildon Magistrates Court tomorrow (Monday 8th).

Two lorry drivers have already appeared in court in connection with the case.

Stephen McLaughlin, 34, and Timothy Murphy, 33, both from Londonderry, are also charged with conspiring to facilitate illegal entry into the UK.

They are due to appear next at Basildon Crown Court in November.

Kapoor was among a group of 35 immigrants found in the container, including 13 children, the rest of whom survived the ordeal.

The group, whose ages ranged from one to 72, are believed to have fled Afghanistan after suffering persecution.
