If the doors are locked in the open position it's easy to see if anyone has got into the trailer.

Well that's true I just don't understand why the drivers don't lock the rear doors surely that would be game over!
our dear little friends have bolt cutters - it was on the box the other night.
Many lorries leave their back doors open if they are empty to show there is nothing inside worth stealing.

Thing is I don't leave my back door open (albeit there's nothing to steal) but it avoids any temptation to passers-by who may wish to wander in you wouldn't dream of leaving your doors open at night at home.
If you have to show you have nothing on board to the Authorities then the driver can unlock them on request this would be when the vehicle is stationary and when in a secure location/customs checking etc
I think they are the empty ones, if the Migrants climb in they are obviously on view to border control.
