The 16 people found in the back of a lorry on a ferry to Co Wexford spent the night in a reception centre in Dublin.

They spent up to 12 hours in the trailer of an articulated tractor unit - before being discovered at Rosslare port yesterday afternoon.

They had travelled on a Stena ferry from Cherbourg before staff at the port found them.

Superintendent Jim Doyle says all 16 are in excellent health.
