Mo Robinson (pictured left and right) is the truck driver arrested after 39 people were found dead in the back of a lorry he was driving – police have asked a judge for 24 more hours to interview him
The lorry driver carrying dozens of frozen migrants from China as cargo apparently fainted when he opened the doors and saw their dead bodies – as police today convinced a judge to give them another 24 hours to question him on suspicion of murdering 39 people.
Maurice ‘Mo’ Robinson, 25, remains in custody at an Essex police station as police grill him on whether he knew the 31 men and eight women from 5,000 miles away were in the back.
A friend of the Northern Irishman has told MailOnline that Robinson pulled over near Purfleet docks in Essex to grab paperwork from the refrigeration unit only to find dozens of frozen bodies in the rear.
A witness told the Evening Standard that he then ‘passed out’ after dialling 999 for an ambulance at 1.40am yesterday morning.
Police are probing whether the immigrants were moved into the UK by a Northern Ireland-based people smuggling ring as three properties across the province were raided overnight, including Robinson’s own home.
A force spokesman said: ‘Detectives investigating the murder of 39 people in Grays have secured a warrant of further detention from local magistrates at Basildon for a 25-year-old man from Northern Ireland.
‘The man, a lorry driver, has been arrested on suspicion of murder and will now remain in custody for up to an additional 24 hours.’
The stowaways – 31 men and eight women including a young adult woman – had travelled from China to the UK and slowly froze to death in ‘absolutely horrendous’ conditions after they tried to reach Britain on a cargo ferry from Zeebrugge in Belgium.
Police are probing whether the victims were being trafficked by criminal gangs operating in the UK who sell them as slaves to work in nail bars, brothels, massage parlours and restaurants.

Murder detectives in Essex are still interviewing lorry driver Maurice ‘Mo’ Robinson, 25, whose home in Markethill, Co Armagh, was raided last night before a team entered the nearby home he used to share with his parents, who have flown to England overnight to support their son. A third property in Armagh City was also searched this morning.
Police are focussing on whether Robinson knew he was picking up dozens of immigrants from Purfleet docks on Tuesday night amid claims his HGV’s -25c chiller unit, usually carrying biscuits and mushrooms from Ireland, was switched on.
The migrants were huddled inside the super-chilled sound-proofed container for at least 15 hours by the time the door was opened by Mr Robinson, who called an ambulance from an industrial estate in Thurrock, Essex, at 1.40am yesterday.
A friend of the murder suspect told MailOnline today: ‘Mo is from the nicest family you could meet. I’m telling you now, he wouldn’t have known those people were in the back.
‘Apparently he’d parked up at the industrial estate in Essex and had gone to fetch the paperwork from a pocket on the inside of the lorry door. When he opened the container up and saw all the dead bodies, he was absolutely horrified – as anyone would be – and called the ambulance service who in turn alerted the police. I heard the container was refrigerated – the temperature was -25C and the bodies were frozen and had been dead for some time.’
As police in Britain launched its biggest murder investigation since 7/7, this is what is known about the horrifying case:
- The 39 immigrants found frozen to death were all from China – 31 men and eight women – with police probing if they were being trafficked into the UK to work for criminal gangs;
- Devon and Cornwall police chief Shaun Sawyer, the National Police Chiefs Council lead, says criminals see the UK as an ‘easy target’ because we are a rich and ‘welcoming country’;
- The victims from 5,000 miles away probably travelled to Zeebrugge, Belgium, through Holland and perhaps via Varna, Bulgaria, before sailing to Purfleet, Essex, arriving at 12.30am on Wednesday morning.
- Lorry driver ‘Mo’ Robinson, 25, dialled 999 30 minutes after pick-up having gone to get his cargo paperwork and finding 39 dead bodies piled up inside, a close friend has claimed;
- Police have raided three properties in Northern Ireland, including the one he shares with his partner, who is expecting twins;
Robinson arrived in the UK at the weekend after a ferry from Dublin to Holyhead. He picked up the trailer, which had been shipped from Zeebrugge to Purfleet, yesterday morning. Minutes later, he pulled into the Essex industrial estate and the alarm was raised
Two houses have been raided by police in Northern Ireland – one belonging to the lorry driver in Markethill and the other belonging to his parents in Laurelvale, both Co Armagh. A third house in Armagh City has also been raided
Final journey: How the 39 tragic migrants ended up in Purfleet, Essex, dead in the back of a refrigerated biscuit lorry
Horrified driver raised the alarm when he opened lorry’s rear door and found the 39 dead bodies, says his friend
The lorry driver arrested over the deaths of 39 people in the back of his container was the one who alerted emergency services, a friend has told MailOnline.
The man, who asked not to be named, said: ‘Mo is from the nicest family you could meet. I’m telling you now, he wouldn’t have known those people were in the back.
‘Apparently he’d parked up at the industrial estate in Essex and had gone to fetch the paperwork from a pocket on the inside of the lorry door.
‘When he opened the container up and saw all the dead bodies, he was absolutely horrified – as anyone would be – and called the ambulance service who in turn alerted the police.
‘Mo’s been a driver since he was 21-years-old and is a decent fella who wouldn’t have been involved in anything criminal like this.
‘I heard the container was refrigerated – the temperature was -25 degrees and the bodies were frozen and had been dead for some time.’
The Essex lorry disaster is the biggest tragedy of its kind since 2000, when 58 Chinese stowaways died on a ferry from Belgium to Britain.
Detectives are now looking into an Irish people smuggling ring which has links to the Bulgarian city of Varna, where the truck is registered to, and may have been moving human cargo from China between Zeebrugge and the Essex port of Purfleet due to increased security at Dover and Calais.
Varna, a port on the Black Sea, is ideal for traffickers because it has ferry links to Asia via Turkey, Georgia and Russia.
Shaun Sawyer, the Chief Constable of Devon and Cornwall Police and the National Police Chiefs Council lead for modern slavery and human trafficking, admitted today that people smuggling gangs see the UK as an ‘easy target’ to lure migrants.
He told the BBC: ‘One can go back to 2000 when 58 Chinese nationals were found dead in Dover – there’s a real timeline of the misery here.
‘The attraction of the UK which, whether we accept it or not, is hugely economically wealthy. It has human rights. It’s perceived though, by organised crime, as a potential easy target to inculcate and be purveyors of hope and then treating despair and misery which can lead to loss of life.
‘The reality is that it’s incumbent on all of us to realise that there is the right and obligation for the UK to defend its borders.
‘We reach out as a country on a global stage but we must protect our borders from infiltration.
‘We want to be a welcoming country. There are routes but unfortunately the smugglers and human traffickers will exploit the doubt, exploit the push factors in country and bring people here at risk to their life’.
Specialist teams are conducting fingertip searches of the road leading into the Waterglade Industrial Park in Thurrock, Essex.
How do ports detect migrants inside lorries?
X-ray scanners: Lorries are driven into a tunnel where a team slowly scan the container for signs of life using X-rays and heat sensors. The process takes around an hour so lorries are picked at random. Some older scanners may not work on refrigerated containers because they contain a vacuum, it has been claimed.
Physical inspections: Border force teams or police look to see if a container has been tampered with and if necessary will open it up to check the contents.
Sniffer dogs: Teams of sniffer dogs and officers with hand scanners are often sent into a container to see if anyone is hidden behind, under or inside goods.
A dozen officers in black uniforms and gloves have been seen on their hands and knees today scouring the area near where the lorry had been parked.
Police have extended their search site, putting up a cordon next to the green barriers already in place as they hunt for clues.
A strong police presence remains at the industrial estate, with several cars parked there and uniformed officers manning the cordon.
Flowers for the victims were also left at the cordon.
Experts yesterday said the temperature inside the refrigerated trailer unit, which is said to usually carry biscuits, might have been as low as -25C (-13F) when they perished. In reality, they could have been inside their metal coffin for much longer. Although paramedics reached the scene minutes after being called out, all they found was a pile of bodies.
Mo Robinson, who is expecting twins with his partner, called his lorry ‘the Polar Express’, having started working for himself around a year ago after leaving a larger haulier firm in Northern Ireland.
CCTV shows Robinson’s truck driving into the industrial estate in Essex at 1.10am on Wednesday and police arrived around half an hour later. Neither the nationality of the victims, nor the origin of the container is currently known.
The truck was removed from the scene yesterday afternoon, with the 39 victims still believed to be inside, as police begin the process of identifying them.
Investigations are ongoing and the latest pictures showed two properties in Northern Ireland being raided by police. A third was searched this afternoon.

Were the 39 Chinese nationals frozen to death being trafficked by criminals to work in brothels and restaurants?
The Essex lorry disaster is the biggest tragedy of its kind since 2000 when 58 Chinese stowaways died on a ferry from Belgium to Britain.
Again, on the same route into Britain, 39 Chinese people have died, it was revealed today.
In the past 20 years have there has been a ‘conveyor’ network bringing in Chinese nationals into the UK in the back of lorries.
Many are sold as slaves to work in the sex industry, restaurants and other businesses, refugee groups claim.
In 2017 a bulldog breeder and show judge who made more then £100,000 by luring Asian woman to Britain to work in a prostitution network was jailed for four years.
Hong Chin, 45, had 18 sex workers from China and Malaysia staying in budget hotels around Gatwick Airport and the south east and south west of England.
Chin began his ‘shameful’ double life as a pimp while he managed Royal Esher Bulldogs on a country estate in Surrey and adjudicated on dog shows including the London Bulldog Society Open Show in June 2015.
The human trafficker advertised sex workers for up to £100-an-hour on ‘adultwork.com’ and used the profits to send his daughter to a top private school.
In June 2000 the bodies of 58 Chinese illegal immigrants were found in the back of a truck at the English port of Dover. Two people survived.
A year later a Dutch truck driver was sentenced to 14 years in jail for their manslaughter after he closed the only air vent and they suffocated to death,
In 2004 At least 21 Chinese workers kept prisoner by evil gangmasters were drowned off the coast of Lancashire, when they were trapped by the incoming tide after picking cockles.
In March, 2006, a man originally from China was found guilty of manslaughter by a British court. He and his Chinese girlfriend and cousin were also convicted of helping those who died to break immigration laws, according to the BBC.
While several officers raided a property in Laurelvale, others were also seen outside a property in the Markethill area, where a van had been parked outside.
Other shots show the officers entering one of the properties and going inside.
In a statement Essex Police said there were eight women and 31 men among the 39 people found dead in a lorry trailer in Grays, Essex, on Wednesday.
The force, which said the case is the largest murder investigation in its history, said officers believe they are all Chinese nationals.
A statement said: ‘Of these, 38 are believed to be adults, and one is a young adult woman. We previously reported that she may have been a teenager. We have since confirmed that eight of the deceased are women and 31 are men and all are believed to be Chinese nationals. We arrested a man on suspicion of murder, who remains in custody.
‘We want to be clear – we have not speculated about the identity of this man, and we will not do so. We can confirm that three properties in County Armagh have been searched in connection with our investigation.
‘The lorry has since been removed from the industrial park to allow the next stage of our investigative process to be conducted in peace, and to give the utmost dignity to those within the trailer as we prepare for a coroner’s post-mortem examination.
‘Each of the 39 people must undergo a full coroner’s process to establish a cause of death, before we move on to attempting to identify each individual within the trailer. This will be a substantial operation and, at this stage, we cannot estimate how long these procedures will take.’
The force confirmed details about the movements of the lorry’s tractor, the front part including the driver’s cab.
The statement said: ‘Our lines of enquiry are extensive and will be thorough. This means that we might not have all the answers straight away. We do have some key facts, which are:
‘The tractor unit of the lorry had entered the country via Holyhead on Sunday 20 October, having travelled over from Dublin.
‘The lorry then collected the trailer, which had travelled from Zeebrugge, at the port of Purfleet at around 12.30am on the 23 October. The cab and trailer left the port shortly after 1.05am.
‘We were called to Waterglade Industrial Park in Eastern Avenue shortly before 1.40am on Wednesday 23 October by our colleagues in the East of England Ambulance Service to reports that 39 people had been found dead in the trailer of a lorry.’
Police officers were shown to be lined up next to the lorry today and bowed their head in respect for those who had died in the tragedy
A border force lorry arrived at the Port of Tilbury in Essex last night where the lorry that 39 bodies were found inside has been moved to
Police chief: Traffickers see the UK as an ‘easy target’ because of its ‘permeable borders’
Shaun Sawyer, the national spokesman for British police on human trafficking, said many thousands of people were seeking to come to the United Kingdom. While they were able to rescue many of those smuggled into the country, Britain was perceived by organised crime as a potentially easy target for traffickers.
‘You can’t turn the United Kingdom into a fortress. We have to accept that we have permeable borders,
He said the incident is a tragedy that law enforcement, NGOs, the church and faith groups are working ‘every single moment of every single day’ to prevent.
‘So how many have we prevented? How many lives that we saved? Turn it on its head.
‘It will be hundreds and thousands. But sadly, tragically, for 39 people that didn’t work yesterday,’ he told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme.
Detectives now say the refrigerated trailer containing the victims arrived at Purfleet from Zeebrugge in Belgium at around 12.30am on Wednesday while the front section known as the tractor came from Northern Ireland.
The lorry and trailer left the port shortly after 1.05am and officers were called around 30 minutes later after ambulance staff made the grim discovery at Waterglade Industrial Park in Eastern Avenue in nearby Grays.
The vehicle driver, named in reports as 25-year-old Mo Robinson from Portadown in Co Armagh, Northern Ireland, is being held by Essex police on suspicion of murder.
Home Secretary Priti Patel tweeted: ‘This morning I met officers from Essex Police to express my thanks for their response to the tragic incident in Grays & receive an update on the investigation. I stand behind them as they continue their work to establish how this horrific event came to happen.’
The deaths follow warnings from the National Crime Agency (NCA) and the Border Force of the increased risk of people-smuggling via Belgium and into quieter ports such as Purfleet.
The NCA previously said it had a ‘greater focus’ on rising smuggler numbers in Belgium after the closure of a migrant camp, and a Border Force assessment highlighted Zeebrugge as being among ‘key ports of embarkation for clandestine arrivals’.
The NCA has also warned that criminal networks are suspected to have started targeting quieter ports on the east and south coasts of the UK as well as the main Channel crossing between Calais and Dover.
Were warnings ignored? Police told ministers three years ago about Purfleet risks
by Mario Ledwith for the Daily Mail
Ministers were warned three years ago about the port where 39 bodies were found in a lorry yesterday.
The National Crime Agency said people-smugglers were switching to Purfleet because it was ‘less busy’ than other UK entry points.
The bodies were found in a refrigerated shipping container that came through the Essex port.
It was picked up by a lorry and was parked on an industrial estate when police and paramedics arrived in the early hours to find a scene of horror.
Police and the NCA have started a massive hunt for the people smugglers behind the tragedy. Robinson, 25, from County Armagh in Northern Ireland, was being questioned by officers.
The incident raises questions about border checks and whether the authorities have done enough to tackle trafficking gangs. The NCA had warned in 2016 that smugglers were turning their attention to ‘less busy’ ports in Britain. Its report even named Purfleet as a target.
It said gangs were being ‘displaced’ from northern France because of tighter security there.
This May the NCA warned that Belgian ports such as Zeebrugge were becoming people-smuggling hotspots. An earlier report from the Border Force also said Zeebrugge was a key concern.
Tim Loughton, a Tory MP who sits on the Commons home affairs committee, said: ‘We need the authorities in Britain and Belgium to urgently step up security measures to ensure that people traffickers are not going to profit from human misery. This is a human tragedy on a massive scale which raises serious questions about how human trafficking may have moved north from France.’
Councillor Paul Berry said today the village of Laurelvale, where the Robinson family live, was in ‘complete shock’.
Mr Berry, who has been in contact with Mr Robinson’s father several times, said he learned of his son’s arrest through social media.
‘He had said he had been getting messages via people on social media on what was happening and at that stage it was not confirmed to him or his family that his son had been arrested,’ said the DUP representative.
‘In the local area the feeling is one of complete shock and hope this is not a true story in terms of his involvement.’
Mr Berry, who knows the father well, said the family were ‘very well respected’ in the area.
‘The local community is hoping that he (Mo Robinson) has been caught up innocently in this matter but that’s in the hands of Essex Police, and we will leave it in their professional hands to try to catch the perpetrators of this.’
He said the family had been left upset by the ‘unwelcome spotlight’ the incident had shone on them.
‘It was very distressing for the family as they just felt they were captive in their own home,’ he said.
Essex police began a murder inquiry yesterday as they attempted to establish who the migrants were and which country they had travelled from.
Like thousands of others before them, the group are thought to have sneaked inside the container at the busy Belgian shipping port of Zeebrugge, where row after row of rectangular metal containers are lined up ready to be transported to the UK.
Police are trying to establish when the group got inside and if smugglers found the container for them and then locked the door behind them.
The container was placed on a cargo ship on Tuesday, which then set sail around 2pm. The choppy Channel crossing took around ten hours before the ship docked at the Essex port of Purfleet on the Thames at 12.30am yesterday.
Richard Burnett, chief executive of the Road Haulage Association, said those inside would have frozen to death in horrendous conditions if the refrigeration had been switched on.
‘It’s going to be dark and if the fridge is running it’s going to be incredibly cold,’ he said.
The lorry was captured at around 1.24am driving down Motherwell Way and a murder investigation has now been launched
Forensic officers (pictured above) were pictured doing a full sweep of the vehicle after the discovery was made in Essex
‘The only place to go to the toilet is inside the container. You can imagine if they’ve been in there for days it would be pretty grim.’
On Tuesday night trucker Maurice ‘Mo’ Robinson, 25, was waiting inside his purple lorry cab at Purfleet docks for the container to be unloaded from the ship.
The self-employed haulier, who lives in the Northern Irish village of Laurelvale in County Armagh, drove out of the port 35 minutes later with it attached to his lorry.
He drove his Scania truck one mile to an industrial estate in Grays, Essex, where he arrived at 1.10am yesterday.
CCTV footage has emerged of the lorry driving towards the Waterglade Industrial Park minutes before the shocking discovery inside the container.
An ambulance control room then received a 999 call informing them of the bodies in the container. Last night police would not reveal if this call was made by Mr Robinson. The East of England Ambulance Service were the first to arrive. Five ambulances, hazardous area response teams and a car from the Essex and Herts Air Ambulance were all dispatched. Essex Police were then called. Minutes later, they arrested Mr Robinson on suspicion of murder.
Hauliers who exploit the Bulgaria connection
By Mario Ledwith for the Daily Mail
Haulage operators in the UK and Ireland are setting up their companies in Bulgaria to take advantage of tax breaks.
It was initially feared that the lorry involved in yesterday’s tragedy had travelled from the eastern European country.
But Bulgaria’s prime minister Boyko Borissov yesterday insisted it had simply been registered in the country by an Irish woman in 2017 and had not returned since then.
The practice of setting up haulage companies in Bulgaria has become increasingly popular, with legal firms and online message boards filled with advice about how to do so.
EU rules allow British and Irish firms to register there while operating across the bloc, with companies attracted by the country’s 10 per cent corporation tax.
Haulage firms can also take advantage of a quick registration process with low administration fees, while costs to run a company are significantly cheaper.
New companies require a Bulgarian-registered haulage manager to oversee the firm in order to become established, but legal organisations online claim they can provide such people. Drivers can then operate across the EU using a ‘community licence’ for international road haulage.
Bulgaria’s land border with Turkey made it one of the main gateways into Europe from Africa and the Middle East during the migration crisis. But a number of measures, including the creation of a razor-wire fence on the border, increased patrols and the signing of an accord with Turkey, have significantly limited the number of migrants using it as a gateway since 2015.
Since the start of the year, 1,742 people have applied for asylum in Bulgaria, compared to 19,480 in 2016. The staunch anti-immigration stance of Bulgaria’s government and reinforced border security has further limited accessibility, although it remains difficult to determine exact figures for illegal entry.
Once inside Bulgaria, migrants often make contact with smuggling gangs and are shipped towards western Europe.
He remained in police custody last night. Officers are trying to establish if he knew whether the migrants were inside.
The container was removed from the scene yesterday afternoon, with the 39 victims still inside. As it was driven away to a secure location with a police escort, other officers bowed their heads. Last night Mr Robinson’s shaken brother said the family had not heard from him and ‘don’t know what is going on’.
Mr Robinson is understood to have left the £300,000 home he shares with his pregnant girlfriend – who is said to be expecting twins – on Saturday morning.
He is thought to have driven his lorry cab to Dublin where he drove on to a ferry bound for Holyhead in Wales. Police yesterday confirmed that his lorry arrived on the mainland on Saturday.
It is not known what Mr Robinson did on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday before picking up the container at Purfleet in the early hours of yesterday but at some point he drove the 300 miles to Essex before collecting the container.
His lorry cab is adorned with Celtic harps and the world ‘Ireland’ on the windscreen. Beneath it the phrase ‘the ultimate dream’ has been attached, with a dream catcher hanging inside the cab.
He regularly writes messages on Facebook and Instagram about his truck, referring to it as ‘the Scandinavian Express’ and ‘the Polar Express’.
He is thought to rent it, rather than own it. The lorry carries Bulgarian number plates and is a left-hand drive.
Bulgarian public broadcaster BNR said the lorry was registered in that country on June 19, 2017, by an unnamed Irish woman. It left the Balkan country the next day and has not returned since, according to the Bulgarian authorities.
The deaths will lead to renewed calls for added checks on vehicles entering Britain through so-called ‘soft spot’ ports, with Border Force resources currently focused on Dover.
Speaking on Wednesday afternoon, Deputy Chief Constable Pippa Mills said: ‘In order to ensure we maintain the dignity of the people who sadly lost their lives, we will be moving the lorry and the trailer shortly.’
She said they were being moved to nearby Tilbury Docks so the bodies can be recovered while preserving the dignity of the victims.
‘We are yet to identify them and must manage this sensitively with their families,’ she added.
Her comments come after politicians from all sides of the spectrum pledged to tackle the issues which had risen to the forefront of Prime Minister’s Question’s yesterday.
Boris Johnson has said that people traffickers ‘should be hunted down and brought to justice’. As Home Secretary Priti Patel has also pledged for tougher sentences for human traffickers.
Speaking at Prime Minister’s Questions Mr Johnson said the situation was an ‘unimaginable tragedy and truly heartbreaking’.
Putting the Brexit crisis aside, he said the ‘full force of the law’ would come down on those responsible.
He added: ‘I know that the thoughts and prayers of all members will be with those who lost their lives and their loved ones. I’m receiving regular updates. The Home Office will work closely with Essex Police as we establish exactly what has happened.’
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn also reflected on the tragedy, branding it ‘unbelievable’.
He said: ‘Can we just think for a moment of what it must have been like for those 39 people, obviously in a desperate and dangerous situation, for their lives to end, suffocated to death in a container?’
What is it like freezing to death? Shivering and hallucinations as your body battles to keep vital organs active
The first step in freezing to death is a raised heart rate and an increase in breathing as your blood seeks to protect internal organs by slowing the flow to the extremities.
In an attempt to generate heat, your body will now start to shiver. Hypothermia takes just 10 minutes to set in at -1C (30.F).
Organs shut down and the body goes into shock when the heart struggles to pump blood. At this point your liver and kidneys are at risk of failing.
Once your body temperature is below 35C (95F), every one-degree drop reduces your brain’s ability to produce oxygen by three to five per cent. This causes weakness and confusion and, once you’re below 33C (91F), amnesia.
Your body gives up shivering once below 31C (88F). Your blood thickens and oxygen intake drops by 25 per cent. The body feels a desperate need to urinate as the kidneys try to process excess fluids forced in by the constriction of your extremities.
The heat stops functioning properly once your temperature hits 30C (86F) and pumps 66 per cent less blood than usual. Hallucinations occur due to the lack of oxygen and slow metabolism of the brain followed by death.
Ms Patel also highlighted that she would be happy to engage in discussions with the Ministry of Justice in order to see what could be done about the situation.
She said that ‘Home Office immigration officials will be working closely alongside them to establish how this horrific event came to happen.’
