A teenager has been killed after a lorry he was travelling underneath crashed in Oxfordshire.

It's thought 18-year-old Mohammed Hussain is the first refugee to be killed in Britain this year.

He was found dead by Thames Valley Police in Banbury early on Friday.

According to the charity, Help Refugees, Mohammed was making the journey to be reunited with an uncle living Manchester - so he could make an asylum claim.

A man arrested at the scene by the Beaumont Industrial Park on suspicion of causing death by careless driving has been released without charge.
