A man appeared in court on Friday 24 January, in connection with the deaths of 39 people found in a lorry in Grays last year.

Eamonn Harrison, 22, of Mayobridge, Northern Ireland, appeared at Dublin’s High Court where it was agreed that he would be extradited to the UK under the terms of an European Arrest Warrant (EAW).

He faces 39 charges of manslaughter, conspiracy to traffic people and conspiracy to assist unlawful immigration and he has been remanded to appear at Dublin’s High Court on Tuesday 4 February. 

This hearing will agree the terms of Harrison’s extradition, which followed successful applications made by Essex Police and the Crown Prosecution Service.
