Two lorries suspected to be involved with smuggling detained at Dublin Port

The two lorries were seized in Dublin on Tuesday morning.

Two lorries were seized on Tuesday morning at Dublin Port.

The vehicles are currently being investigated by Gardaí, as part of an investigation into a cross border organised crime group.

In a statement issued to JOE, Gardaí said that two trailers were also detained at Dublin Port.

The statement reads: "As part of an ongoing Criminal Assets Bureau investigation into a cross border organised crime group suspected to be involved in smuggling, two (2) Tractor Units and two (2) Curtain Sided Trailer Units have been detained at Dublin Port this morning."

Two weeks ago, 39 people were found dead in a lorry in Essex, and police are still determined to talk to two brothers from Northern Ireland, named Ronan and Christopher Hughes, who are wanted on suspicion of manslaughter and people trafficking.

An Garda Síochána also arrested a 23-year-old man last week in relation to the Essex deaths, as they continue to assist Essex Police in this investigation.
