A total of 68 migrants including 3 babies have been rescued from a boat in the English Channel after attempting a crossing in the early hours of Christmas Day.
A young girl could be heard among the people who were brought to Dover at around midnight on Christmas morning, according to agency reports.
All passengers aboard the vessel are now being processed in the UK.
A Home Office spokeswoman said: “Border Force has intercepted a number of boats containing migrants attempting to cross the Channel overnight and this morning, and has deployed resources to deal with these incidents."
“The evidence shows there is organised criminal gang activity behind illegal migration attempts by small boats across the Channel.
“We are working closely with the French and law enforcement partners to target these gangs, who exploit vulnerable people and put lives at risk.”
