Bodies in a Truck – level 1

30-10-2019 15:00

A truck comes from Belgium to England. Police find 39 people inside the truck. All of the people are dead. They are Chinese. A young man drives the truck. He is now with the police. He cannot leave.

It is a very complicated situation. The police need a lot of time to solve it. They do not have information about the dead people.

The British Prime Minister says that this is a horrible case. The police work very hard. It is the biggest case for them. Chinese officials and Belgian police help, too.

Difficult words: complicated (very difficult), case (a situation which the police must solve), official (a person from the government).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
