Three children among eight found in container in Rosslare Europort

Eight people, including three children, have been found in a container which arrived on a ferry into Rosslare Europort this afternoon.

Gardaí confirmed to the Irish Independent that all eight people received medical attention at the scene, do not require any further medical attention and are "alive and well".

The people were discovered after the Stena Line ferry from Cherbourg to Rosslare docked on Thursday afternoon.

It is believed some of the people may be immediate family members and may be of Kurdish origin.

Their claims for asylum will now be assessed in Dublin.
