A missing Vietnamese woman who texted her mother to say “I can’t breathe” is feared to be among 39 people found dead in a refrigerated trailer in Essex.

Details of possible Vietnamese victims emerged as police arrested a third person on suspicion of people trafficking and manslaughter.

Ms Pham was known to have planned to attempt to travel to England, according to a human rights group in contact with her family.

Her brother told the BBC they had paid £30,000 to people smugglers and her last known location had been in Belgium.

An Essex Police spokeswoman told The Independent officers had received no information indicating whether Ms Pham was among the victims.
