A man has been charged with an immigration offence in connection with the investigation into the deaths of 39 migrants in a refrigerated lorry.

Gazmir Nuzi, of Barclay Road in Tottenham, north London, was arrested on Thursday, Essex Police said.

The 42-year-old has now been charged with conspiracy to facilitate the commission of a breach of UK immigration law by a non-EU person, the force said.

He is due to appear at Chelmsford Magistrates' Court on Friday.

The 39 Vietnamese nationals were found in a lorry container parked on an industrial estate in Grays, Essex.

Ten teenagers, including two 15-year-old boys, were among those found dead in the lorry in the early hours of 23 October last year.
