On the day the EU agreed to just accept Theresa Might’s draft Brexit deal, Sky Information witnessed the rising drawback of migrants crossing the English Channel to succeed in the UK.



It is 2.30 am in Dover once we first hear reviews of one other stranded migrant boat.


It is bitterly chilly and amid the darkness and the swell of the ocean the coastguard seek for greater than two hours.


We’re following carefully behind with an area skipper.


Even on this huge catamaran the Channel waters are turbulent, it is exhausting to think about being out right here in a tiny dinghy.


We’re searching for a flashing SOS mild coming from the stranded boat and finally out of the darkness a dinghy seems.
