Saturday saw more illegal migrant boat crossings meaning that more than thirty boats carrying nearly 500 people have made it to the UK using this route in just one week.

The Home Office have confirmed that there were five further incidents on Saturday that saw another 65 migrants get to England via small boats across the Channel.

The problem of illegal immigration across the Channel on small boats has become a daily problem.

Migrant boats have regularly made it to England over the course of the last week, including 180 people on fifteen boats last Sunday alone.

Mid-week saw 85 migrants cross on six boats and there were another nine boats with 125 people making it across on Friday.

In total, that means at least 35 migrant boats carrying 455 people have made it across since last Sunday.

The Minister for Immigration Compliance and the Courts, Chris Philp, has said: “We are removing those who are making these illegal crossing from the UK. More than 160 people will be returned to Italy, Germany and France and return requests are in place for hundreds more.”
