#ferry -  A container was discovered to have eight people inside when it arrived on a ferry into Rosslare Europort in Co Wexford.

The four adults, two teenagers and two children according to RTE are all reported to be safe.

They were discovered after the Stena Line ferry from Cherbourg to Rosslare docked yesterday (Thursday) afternoon.

It is understood they were in what is known as a "curtain container" which had come from the French port.

Three ambulances attended the scene and all eight were medically assessed and brought to hospital for check-ups but none of them needed further treatment.
