Vietnamese families fear their relatives are among 39 dead in Grays

The Vietnamese Embassy has contacted police as officials believe one of their nationals may have been in the container in which 39 people died in Essex this week.

The 26-year-old is understood to have messaged her mum saying "I'm dying because I can't breathe".

Three people are now being questioned by detectives.

Former police chief Kevin Hurley explains the conditions some people can face on the way to the UK.
