More than 1,000 migrants have arrived in the UK over the past 10 days after crossing the Channel in dozens of boats. 

This takes the total so far this year to at least 4,511, more than double the amount thought to have crossed during the whole of 2019.

1,004 migrants were brought ashore by Border Force between August 4 and 13.

On Saturday the Home Office confirmed that on Thursday 89 migrants who made the crossing in five boats were brought to the UK, as well as 48 who arrived in four boats on Friday.
