Four boats carrying fifty migrants have attempted to cross the English Channel.
Two vessels – each carrying 13 men – were intercepted by Border Force and brought to Dover.
Across the Channel, French authorities rescued 24 migrants after their boats’ engines failed.
Tony Eastaugh, the Home Office’s director for crime and enforcement, said the UK was “working in tandem with the French and Belgian authorities” to tackle illegal migrant crossings.
At least 41 migrants attempted to cross the Channel on Tuesday, including a boat carrying 14 migrants which sunk off the coast of De Panne, Belgium.
