Dover MP, Natalie Elphicke, is urging the Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, to meet with Emmanuel Macron over small boats crisis, which claimed more lives this week.

She said: “The tragic loss of life in the English Channel underlines the urgency of ending the small boats crisis.

“The criminal gangs behind these dangerous journeys have a callous disregard for human life. They won’t stop unless they are made to by Britain and France.

“That’s why the Prime Minister should meet urgently with President Macron to agree a joint Channel patrol on the beaches to stop the boats getting in the water – and a joint Channel patrol to protect lives.

“Urgent action is needed now.”
