Thirty-nine people found dead inside a truck container in southeastern England have been formally identified as Vietnamese nationals, according to Essex police.

It came as British police confirmed that those discovered in the refrigerated truck on October 23 all came from the southeast Asian nation.

They were from Hai Phong City and Hai Duong Province in northern Vietnam, and the central provinces of Nghe An, Ha Tinh, Quang Binh and Thua Thien-Hue.

Officers had been working with Vietnamese authorities in their efforts to identify the victims.

The Vietnamese embassy in London said it was "in deep sorrow, we would like to convey our profound condolences and sympathy to the bereaved families".

Beasley-Murray said that the identification of the victims was a very important step in the investigation since it enabled the United Kingdom police to work with Vietnamese colleagues to support the families of the victims.

'Our thoughts remain with the families and friends of those whose tragic journey ended on our shores'.

The Vietnamese government cooperated with United Kingdom local police to identify the bodies.

Essex Police continues to lead the investigation, working with the National Crime Agency and with European law enforcement colleagues.

Vietnamese and United Kingdom authorities are cooperating to continue supporting the families and further investigate the incident.
