Channel migrants: I've offered joint patrols to prevent crossings – Patel

Home Secretary Priti Patel has told MPs journeys across the Channel are “lethally dangerous”.

She told the House of Commons that she had offered again to the French interior minister to operate shared patrols between French and British ships.

She said she had offered to work with France to do “whatever is necessary to secure the area so that vulnerable people do not risk their lives by getting into unseaworthy boats”.
