On Thursday morning, with the Channel waters calm, beachgoers filmed 26 people land illegally on Ramsgate shores. As soon as the Illegal Migrants touched the sand, they dispersed along the coast.
The Beach invasion was caught on Camera by those who were visiting. Eventually, the authorities turned up at the scene. The Police and UK Border Force then detained the migrants, placing them on coaches that travelled to Dover for processing.
Out of the 26 people filmed leaving the boat, 24 were males of fighting age and 2 women.
Chris Johnson, who has been documenting the migrant emergency in Dover for many years, said there might have been 8 more beach landing on the same day.
The local media reported an onlooker saying: “We were at the beach when the dinghy came to the shore. I was the one that called it into the coastguard and police. I said that they are falling in and struggling in the water.”
“No one came to help until about 15 minutes later, and it was one lifeguard on a quad bike. Then about 10 minutes after that, the police showed up.”
“My partner went over to make sure there weren’t children as if there had been, he would have gone out to help.”
