By: Dr Dhia Kadhem

It was mentioned by news papers that more than 24,500 migrants have crossed the Channel in small boats this year – almost triple the number that reached the UK in 2020.

More than 1,000 arrived on Tuesday, 16 November 2021 while on Thursday dozens more migrants are believed to have crossed the Channel, including an individual who had to be airlifted to hospital after suffering a suspected medical episode while attempting to cross by boat.
