Border Force boat returns to Dover after busy day rescuing migrants in English Channel

The UK's Border Force boat HMC Vigilant returned to Dover Port after a busy day rescuing migrants from the English Channel on Saturday 9 October. It was one of a number of rescues on a particularly busy day for the Border Force. The day -- clear and sunny -- has been seen as one of the last chances for such migrants to cross the Channel before seasonal changes in the weather make the journey even more dangerous.
