The driver of the vehicle was also arrested when police stopped the vehicle on the motorway near Waltham Abbey at about 18:10 GMT on Thursday.

Essex Police said one of the male suspects found at the rear of the container had been taken to hospital for treatment.

The force has not provided details of the men’s ages or nationalities.
