UK Border Force ship returns to Dover with large number of migrants rescued in English Channel

The UK Border Force vessel Seeker returned to Dover port on Sunday afternoon 10 October, with numerous migrants rescued in the English Channel. The Border Force have been especially busy with such operations this weekend, with hundreds of people making the journey every day for the last few days, and hundreds more stopped from doing so in France. The calm conditions are believed to have encouraged the surge, seen as being one of the last chances to make the trip before northern Europe heads into tougher winter weather.
