90 migrants crossed Channel on Christmas Day small boats


There was no sign of people smugglers taking a break for the festive holidays after another 90 migrants crossed the Channel on Christmas Day!

The migrants arrived on two small boats, according to the Ministry of Defence, which keeps track of the number of people who have made the journey.

It comes as the final number of crossings for 2022 heads towards 50,000 in a year that has seen a record-breaking number of migrants make the crossing from France to Britain.

As of midnight on Boxing Day 45,552 migrants were known to have arrived through this method, most of which have been picked up by Border Force boats patrolling the waters.
