Another 20 migrants brave bitter sea temperatures to cross Channel to UK in tiny boats

Around 20 migrants crossed the English Channel earlier today on inflatable boats without engines, including a tiny sleeping baby.

The first group of six men were brought into Dover Marina before 8am on a Border Force vessel towing their grey rigid hulled inflatable boat.

They were seen cloaked in light blue blankets around their shoulders for warmth as they were escorted up the gangway by Immigration Enforcement officers.

Many of the group were barefooted despite the bitter temperatures at sea and were handed white disposable flip flops as they arrived.

The inflatable craft was not equipped with an outboard engine and paddles could be seen in the hull.

French authorities also prevented three attempted crossings overnight and into Wednesday morning involving 45 people.

A total of 161 people have made the dangerous crossing in ten boats in April.

And at least 1,523 have now made the 21 mile journey from the French coast in 2021.

A Home Office spokesperson said: ‘People smugglers are putting lives at risk by facilitating these dangerous journeys.

‘We are working closely with our partners in France to stop migrants from leaving French beaches and since Monday attempted crossings involving more than 150 people have been stopped.

‘The Government’s New Plan for Immigration will break the business model of people smugglers and overhaul the broken asylum system.’
