The Border Force and Royal Navy are expected jointly to patrol the channel amid fears more migrants will try and use the route to enter Britain.
It has been reported that the government plans to increase collaboration between the UK Border Force and the Royal Navy in order to strengthen defences against migrants crossing illegally by sea into the UK. This seems due to the fact that the Border Force only has three vessels operating at any one time in the seas off Britain,
Bernard Barron, president of the Calais coastguard, warned media last month that the Channel risks seeing the same scenes of tragedy as the Mediterranean as migrants are taking increasingly desperate risks to get on to British shores.
This follows news that some Albanians had to be rescued by RNLI Lifeboat crews off the coast of Dungeness when their boat started to sink. It is understood that two British citizens have been charged with immigration offences and are due to appear.
At the time, it was only the second or third time in ten years that someone had tried to attempt such a crossing, said head of a local police union, Gilles Debove. The frequency is now starting to increase.
French police said crossing the Channel is very dangerous because of the large number of ships in the waterway, the BBC reported.
