Daily Mail published this video item, entitled “‘Shocked and appalled’ Boris Johnson reacts to deaths of 27 migrants who tried to cross the Channel” – below is their description.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Wednesday he was ‘shocked and appalled’ and that action to address the crisis must now follow.

‘What this shows is that the gangs who are sending people to sea in these dangerous crafts will literally stop at nothing,’ the Prime Minister said.

‘But what I’m afraid it also shows is that the operation that is being conducted by our friends on the beaches, supported … with £54million from the UK to help patrol the beaches, the technical support we’ve been giving, they haven’t been enough.

‘Our offer is to increase our support but also to work together with our partners … on the launching grounds for these boats. That’s something I hope will be acceptable now in view of what has happened.

‘I say to our partners now is the time for us all to step up, to work together, to do everything we can to break these gangs who are literally getting away with murder.’
