SIX MIGRANTS INCLUDING a child have been found in a truck on the side of the road in Laois.

The group was found at 4.40pm yesterday when a refrigeration truck was searched by gardaí at Stradbally. It’s understood the truck driver alerted gardaí to noises coming from his truck.

When searched, gardaí found six foreign nationals on board – three males, two females and a child.

A Garda team from Rosslare Port will interview the detainees at Portlaoise Garda Station at a later stage.

Gardaí say that no further information is available at this stage.
