Migrants rescued from second boat on same night four lives lost in Channel

After a second boat carrying migrants began sinking, fifty people were rescued. Four people also died in an incident on the English Channel.

According to government officials, five people out of 50 ended up in the freezing waters.

Border Force officers saved the migrants during a terrible week on the busiest shipping route in the world.

Kent Police and National Crime Agency are investigating the circumstances of the separate incident that occurred early Wednesday morning. Four lives were lost, and 39 others were saved by a capsized dinghy.


After the tragic incident, officers are now trying to find the victims and their families. The search for other people involved in the tragedy was halted at 5pm on Thursday.

One teenager was among the victims, and there were at least 12 children aboard the inflatable vessel.

A British fishing crew saved 31 people. He told Sky News that he was awakened by migrants “screaming for help” in the early hours Wednesday morning. A French charity claimed they were given a mayday call.

He claimed that the people he saved were from Afghanistan, Iraq and Senegal, and also said they each had paid PS5,000 to a French smuggler for entry into the UK.

A timeline showing the most recent Channel tragedy

The Ministry of Defence (MoD), Thursday’s announcement, stated that 401 migrants had been detected in eight boats on Thursday. This does not include the four people who died.

These latest figures bring the provisional total of the number of migrants who made this year’s crossing to 45,223.

This is compared to the more than 28,000 people who crossed the Atlantic in small boats last summer.

Prime Minister Rishi Sundera announced that more money would be provided to the NCA, Britain’s equivalent to the FBI, earlier this week in order to combat organised crime in Europe.

“We are determined to find the responsible”

Graeme Biggar, director general of NCA, said about Wednesday’s deadly capsizing: “This tragic incident highlights the dangers associated with these crossings, a large percentage of which are facilitated through organised criminal networks.

They treat people as commodities and put them in extremely dangerous situations. We are determined to bring those responsible to justice, working with our partners from both sides of the Channel.

Bridget Chapman, the organizer, said that people who are sick of this unnecessary and avoidable waste of their lives will meet at Sunny Sands beach.
