This morning 2 boats holding roughly 25-35 people were brought to Dover by Border Force for processing with multiple coaches waiting.
Home Secretary Priti Patel knows the urgency of this situation and met with her French counterpart yesterday signing an agreement to jointly work together to tackle human trafficking gangs.
Priti said: “This simply cannot be allowed to go on. Today, I have signed an agreement with the French to create a joint intelligence cell which will crack down on the gangs behind this vile people-smuggling operation and impressed on my French counterpart the need to stop these illegal crossings for the benefit of both our countries. This is the start of a new operational approach with the newly appointed French Interior Minister.”
