Migrants land in Kent while Border Force fights "multiple incidents" in "perfect weather".


Border Force was brought back to Kent this morning after a group of migrants landed on the coast – just a few hours after a record 202 crossed the channel yesterday.

Officers wearing face covers spoke to a group of around ten people in Dungeness today.

50 illegal migrants made it to the UK today, another 58 were picked up by the French authorities and brought back to France.

This year, migrants traveling to the UK on small boats and other ships have already risen to 3,421 – almost twice as many as in 2019.

And there are concerns that more could arrive illegally after a source told MailOnline that it was “perfect weather” to make the crossing today, the hottest day of the year.

The Home Office has not yet confirmed how many migrants have landed in Britain today, but the French authorities said they intercepted 41 people in two boats and brought them back to Calais this morning.

A young man who has landed in Kent today is giving a thumbs up to the camera in apparent joy after reaching the UK's coastline on the busiest shipping lane in the world.

In the meantime, a toddler was seen walking around with a Mickey Mouse top and hat, and a boy of about 12 years old was added.

Two women – one with her head in her hands – were at the scene, while another was said to be holding a Chanel bag. The migrants were all arrested by Border Force officials.

It only comes a day after a record 202 migrants made the treacherous crossing on Thursday.

Border Force dealt with 20 different incidents using dinghies, kayaks, zodiaks and even a child's tender to make the treacherous crossings of the 21-mile Dover Strait.

All adults are now being processed by immigration officials who interview them and find out if they are applying for asylum. In this case, the history is checked.

MailOnline announced in April that none of them will be tested for coronavirus by officials.

According to Home Office rules, state doctors and nurses check her for symptoms of Covid-19 instead of using official swabs.

Anyone who shows symptoms is isolated, even in prisons where special isolation areas have been set up, the Home Office has confirmed.

A spokesman said at the time that the policy was in line with the Public Health England guidelines.

They said: “All people have been brought to Dover and will be assessed according to established procedures to determine if there are any medical requirements.

Man jailed for migrant smuggling when six other children were rescued from the English Channel

A London man was imprisoned and exiled from France after attempting to smuggle migrants across the canal in a small boat.

Wayne Mills, 54, is the third person arrested after five Albanians were found on a boat that was about to leave the French port of Cherbourg.

The news comes as more migrants are likely to have tried to travel to the UK on Friday.

The Coast Guard said it is responding to "several incidents" off the Kent coast.

The Border Force ships Seeker and Speedwell have also been active since the early hours of Friday.

Authorities rescued more than 40 migrants in French waters, including six children and two people with disabilities.

At least 202 migrants were able to travel to the UK on 20 boats on Thursday – a daily record.

In July alone, more than 1,000 migrants successfully completed the crossing, as an analysis by the PA news agency shows.

The National Crime Agency (NCA) announced today that the London Mills has been sentenced to four years in prison and a ten-year entry ban has been imposed on France.

Two other people, one of whom is British, were previously convicted and detained in France after being arrested as they were preparing to sail to the French port of Cherbourg on June 27 in a small ship with five Albanian migrants on board leave.

The boat had sailed from the Isle of Wight to France two days earlier.

The 25-year-old boatman Joshua Van Praagh from Portsmouth was detained for three years and was not allowed to return to France for ten years.

The 25-year-old Albanian citizen Armando Hodo was detained for three years and also exiled from France.

& # 39; All are passed on to immigration officials. They are interviewed and their cases are treated in accordance with immigration regulations and detained if necessary.

"In accordance with the guidelines of Public Health England, Border Force and all operational personnel have the appropriate personal protective equipment."

Earlier this month, on July 12, 180 migrants successfully traveled across the Channel to the UK each day.

This year, 3,421 migrants made it to the UK with small boats and other vehicles – compared to 1,850 in 2019.

A source told MailOnline that it was "perfect weather" to make the crossing on what is expected to be the hottest day in July.

A local resident living by the sea said, “You looked very well dressed. I thought the woman with the designer handbag was there first until the officers held blankets around her so she could go to the bathroom. «

About seven men were lying on the pebbles, a young man was lying under an umbrella and had his eyes closed to protect himself from the heat.

One man was wearing a Stone Island t-shirt while another was wearing a Nike hat.

Officials from the police and border forces were seen putting property in evidence bags, but an eyewitness said there was no sign of a boat.

They added: “Some of them looked really happy to have made the crossing. A young man wearing a face mask made a heart-hand gesture and raised his thumbs up before forming a weapon shield with his fingers to celebrate. & # 39;

In a separate incident, a boat of 30 migrants with six children and two adults with physical disabilities called for help near Hardelot just before 5 a.m. today.

They were picked up by the deep-sea tug RIAS Abeille Languedoc and returned to the border police in the port of Calais at 9:30 a.m.

The French authorities rescued another 11 migrants who were in trouble on a boat off Wissant and brought them back to Boulogne-sur-Mer shortly before 9 a.m.

So far, 979 have made the dangerous 21-mile voyage on the busy Dover Strait shipping lane in July – a record for a single month.

The previous record was broken on July 13 when 180 made it to the British coast.

Hundreds of migrants come to the UK in small boats every month, even if the UK is under Coronavirus blocking.

Home Secretary Priti Patel was in Calais on the same day when 200 migrants tried to travel to the UK to discuss with their French counterpart how to deal with illegal crossings.

She said: “Despite all the law enforcement efforts to date – intercepting boats, arresting people, returning to France and leaving those behind bars – the number continues to grow.

"It just can't go on."

In May, the mail revealed how French naval ships escort some migrant-filled boats into British waters before handing them over to the British Border Force without intercepting them.

It is believed that some migrants are threatening to throw themselves in the water, causing the French boats to stop.

Shortly before 8:30 a.m. today, 17 migrants called the French authorities to Wissant in Not.

Her boat – which included a woman and two children – was towed to the Strouanne beach and brought to the national gendarmerie and border police shortly before 11 a.m.

Another boat was picked up by Border Force about a mile off the beach in Deal, Kent, around 2 p.m.

A source said the crossings were "all day" until around 3 p.m. and it was "very busy" in the canal.

Minister of Immigration Compliance and Courts Chris Philp said: “The number of illegal small boat crossings we see from France is unacceptably high. And migrants continue to arrive in Calais to make the crossing.

“The French have to act harder. We need stricter enforcement measures, including interception at sea and direct return of boats.

“The French heard that directly from the Minister of the Interior, and we will continue to work with them until the situation changes.

"We will continue to investigate the criminals who facilitate these crossings and bring back the migrants who come to the UK this way."
