  • ITV News published this video item, entitled “Prime Minister Boris Johnson vows action over ‘desperate’ migrant crossings across the Channel” – below is their description.

    The UK is a “target and magnet” for people traffickers, Boris Johnson has said, as migrant crossings continue. The Prime Minister told the House of Commons he has “a great deal of sympathy” for parents so desperate that they are putting their children in dinghies and even paddling pools to cross the Channel. However he said that they are falling prey to criminal gangs and vowed to change the law to help tackle the crisis. He made the comments as a fresh surge of migrants reached the UK, aided by sunshine and calm seas over the English Channel, resulting in at least 100 people arriving at Dover on Wednesday morning. Groups of people, including young children, were brought to shore by Border Force patrol vessels and lifeboats following a small boat incident in the Channel. Some of the suspected migrants smiled and waved as they arrived into the busy port while others carried toddlers too young to walk. • Subscribe to ITV News on YouTube: http://bit.ly/2lOHmNj • Get breaking news and more stories at http://www.itv.com/news Follow ITV News on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/itvnews/ Follow ITV News on Twitter: https://twitter.com/itvnews Follow ITV News on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/itvnews/
