Stowaway Immigrants Found Inside Shipping Container

Dozens of immigrants were discovered today inside a shipping container at a major London port.

Workers found the 35 stowaways inside a shipping container in a cargo vessel as it was being unloaded.

Officials say a man was also discovered dead.

Workers say they heard desperate cries for help from the ship that had just docked from Belgium.

Police believe the stowaways are from the Indian Subcontinent, but aren't sure if that's where their journey originated.

Essex police say they're treating the incident as a homicide investigation for the time being. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
