A record 202 migrants made it across the English Channel illegally today on small boats.

In the latest shocking example of illegal immigration being utterly out of control, more than 200 migrants successfully got to England in a single day via this route.

They came across in a total of twenty vessels. This is the full list of crossings via the Home Office:

Nigel Farage responded by tweeting at Home Secretary Priti Patel: “A new record 202 migrants reached the UK today. Looks like you’re going to need some more hotels.”

Before these latest crossings there had been 60 illegal migrant boats carrying 743 people since 12th July.

The Minister for Immigration Compliance and the Courts, Chris Philip, has said: “The number of illegal small boat crossings we are seeing from France is unacceptably high. 

“France have stopped thousands of migrants this year and they stopped more today, but more needs to be done. 

“We need stronger enforcement measures, including interceptions at sea and direct return of boats and the French have heard that directly from the Home Secretary.” 

“We continue to go after the criminals who facilitate these crossings, and are setting up a joint intelligence cell with France. This year, 22 people smugglers have been jailed and earlier this week our investigations resulted in 11 more arrests.”
