A FLOTILLA of dinghies carrying almost 100 migrants made it to British waters on Wednesday, including one small boat that landed with 19 people on board.

Border Force ships intercepted four boats carrying migrants on the busiest day for incursions this year - but missed two others that landed in Sussex.

The 92 foreign men, women and children are being processed by Border Force officers at a makeshift centre in Dover, Kent, as officials struggle to deal with increased numbers of migrant incursions.

As well as that thwarted beachhead landing, the Home Office said that the Border Force intercepted two vessels early in the morning, one carrying 11 people and the other with 12.

They claimed to be Iranian, Afghan, Pakistani and Filipino and were taken to Dover, Kent, to be medically assessed and interviewed by immigration officials.

A further nine people who landed on Pett Level Beach, near Winchelsea, were detained medically assessed and interviewed.

Around midday, a Border Force boat intercepted a vessel near Dungeness, Kent, and brought it back to Dover.

Of the 18 people on board, 14 presented themselves as Iranian, three Iraqi and one Vietnamese.

Also around midday, Border Force was alerted to another boat in the Channel which it picked up and transported to Dover.

There were 23 on board the boat, who identified as nationals of Iran and Ethiopia, bringing the total number of migrants to 92.
