Video footage has emerged overnight on Twitter, showing around 20 illegal migrants being escorted into Britain by officials on the shores of Hastings. Over this weekend it’s reported that around 9 boats have made it along the southern shore in Dover and West Sussex.
BBC Reporter Simone Jones tweeted 3 separate times:
- 09:28am “At least three boats carrying migrants have been picked up off the Kent coast this morning. The Border Force vessels Searcher and Hunter have been involved.”
- 14:23 ‘Six boats carrying migrants have succeeded in reaching the UK – five brought into Dover, one into Winchelsea in East Sussex. Two more boats have been returned to France.”
Chris Philp, minister for immigration compliance and the courts, said: “We are all working night and day to dismantle and arrest the criminal gangs who trade in people smuggling.”
