A pregnant woman was among dozens of migrants to be rescued from the English Channel today as at least three trafficking boats were intercepted by officials.

French authorities rescued the expectant mother along with 19 other people from an inflatable boat that was taking on water near Dunkirk this morning.

Meanwhile, another vessel with ten men and one woman on board was intercepted off the coast of Kent at 5.34am. 

The group of suspected migrants, who claimed to be from Iran, were then brought to the marina at Dover by two Border Force boats.
