Six migrants found in back of a truck recover in hospital

Six migrants including a child are recovering in hospital after they were discovered in the back of a truck in Laois.

The group was found at 4.40pm yesterday when a refrigeration truck was searched by gardaí at Stradbally. It’s understood the truck driver alerted gardaí to noises coming from his truck.

When searched, gardaí found five non nationals on board – three males, two females and a child.

All six were brought to hospital as a precaution and initial reports are that all are well.

A Garda team from Rosslare Port will interview the detainees at Portlaoise Garda Station at a later stage.
