Man who filmed migrants arriving in Dover is arrested for ‘breach of the peace’

A man has been arrested for ‘breach of the peace’ after filming migrants boarding a coach in Dover.

The Social media user was recording the group as they waited in a car park in the Kent town.

Immigration officers told him to put down the camera but he continued, adding: ‘It’s about showing the world what is going on’.

One officer said: ‘Leave them alone, they’re not doing anything to you.’ The man was then arrested for breaching the peace and trespassing.

But questions have been raised as to why he was detained during the incident yesterday when he did not appear to have broken the law.

It came as a record number of migrants flooded UK beaches, with 235 in 17 vessels making the perilous crossing from France.
