Two boats carrying 13 migrants have been intercepted in the Channel, the Home Office has confirmed.
The boats, spotted at about 08:00 and 09:00 GMT, were stopped by Border Force vessels and all those on board were taken to Dover, Kent.
The first boat was carrying eight men who said they were Iranian and the second had five men, four of whom said they were Iranian and one Albanian.
One was later found to be a child and will be cared for by social services.
All were medically assessed and interviewed by immigration officials.
