The lorry driver, a 25-year-old man from Northern Ireland, has been arrested on suspicion of murder.

"We believe the lorry is from Bulgaria and entered the country at Holyhead on Saturday 19 October and we are working closely with our partners to investigate,” Essex Police said in a statement.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said he was "appalled" and sent his sympathies to the victims' families.
