Four people have been jailed in Vietnam for their roles in the death of 39 migrants found in a lorry in Essex, according to state media reports.
The men, women and children were discovered in a refrigerated trailer in Grays on 23 October.
The four defendants were found guilty of “organising, brokering illegal emigration” after a one-day trial in Ha Tinh, VnExpress reported.
The state media outlet said one victim paid $22,000 for the illegal journey.
The four defendants, aged between 24 and 36, were given sentences ranging from two-and-a-half to seven-and-a-half years.
Three others received suspended jail sentences.
