Migrants rescued from English Channel transferred from Border Force ship Vigilant

UK Border Force ship Vigilant was spotted transferring migrants rescued in the English Channel to a RIB boat in Dover port on Sunday 10 October. The RIB (rigid inflatable boat) would take the migrants to shore for processing. The weekend has seen a surge in the number of migrants making the crossing from France with hundreds making the journey every day for several days, and hundreds more stopped. Calm conditions before the continent heads into winter have been blamed.
