The lead Catholic Bishop for asylum and migration, Bishop Paul McAleenan, has commented on the tragic deaths of 39 people who were found in a container at the back of a truck at an industrial park in Grays, Essex, on Wednesday.

“We are praying for the thirty-nine women and men who died, for their families, and for all those across the world who have lost their lives while trying to reach a better future.

“This tragedy underscores the urgent need to redouble our efforts in establishing safe passages and combatting criminals who exploit desperate people.”
