The dead man was one of thirty-five people, including 15 children, who were found at Tilbury Docks inside a shipping container that had come from Zeebrugge.  At first the cause of death was unknown and the death and the ill-health of many of the illegal immigrants prompted a health scare and quarantine.

Police in Essex confirmed that officers in Northern Ireland had arrested a 34 year-old man from Limavady on suspicion of manslaughter and facilitating illegal entry into the UK.
