The UK has started to departing the migrants, who crossed the English Channel in small boats, to France in a bid to impede others from doing the same according to the home officials. A small group of individuals who looked for asylum but failed and arrived on the shores of UK in October were sent back to France. The Home office told it wanted to execute “a strong deterrent against the dangerous crossings ”.
The latest step is an initiated with a new plan agreed by France and the UK which will make sure that the UK spend an extra 3m pound for security. It is acknowledged less than five came back to France on Thursday morning. The Home Office told it could not say where the migrants were belonging, nor whether they have visited the UK together in a small boat. The estimation comes after a small stake in the number of migrants crossing the English Channel towards the end of the last year. Following the discussions with the French Ministers, Home Secretary Sajid Javid told: “Today’s joint action plan strengthens our already strong relationship and increases joint action around keeping both our borders secure and discouraging these dangerous journeys”.
Earlier, the UK declared an extra £44.5m would be played out on strengthening the English Channel border security. The home secretary has admitted spending a 6m pound on the surveillance, night goggles, and number plate identification capability.
Additional security cameras will be positioned at French ports and the regions where migrants started from with a live feed inspection screen in the Coordination and Information between UK and France, in Calais which is operated by the French and British agencies.
