    DO not blame the men, women and three children who died in the freezing waters of the English Channel this week for wanting a better life. Place blame where it belongs — on the people-traffickers who earned more than £100,000 to send these desperate souls to their deaths in what was reportedly little more than an inflatable swimming pool. 6Do not blame the men, women and three children who died in the freezing waters of the English Channel this week for wanting a better life like these refugees landing on the south coastCredit: Reuters And place blame on the criminally complacent French cops who — after France trousered £54million from the British taxpayer to stop the trafficking — sit on their derrieres watching the ­dinghies set off as if it is nothing to do with them. And blame French President Emmanuel Macron, whose deranged hatred of Brexit has made him treat the UK as an enemy. And blame our own politicians, who talk so tough about taking back control of our borders and look stern and go blah blah blah...
    Dozens of illegal boat migrants have reportedly drowned in the English Channel after their small boat capsized while trying to reach Britain from France. A huge rescue mission was undertaken on Wednesday after a boat full of illegal migrants capsized off the coast of Calais, France, in what is believed to be the deadliest drowning in the history of the Channel migrant crisis. UPDATE 2000: French President Emmanuel Macron Makes Statement Addressing the tragedy in the English Channel, French President Emmanuel Macron said on Wednesday evening that “France will not let the Channel become a cemetery.” The French leader went on to call for an “emergency meeting of European ministers” to discuss the migrant crisis. Macron also demanded that there should be an “immediate strengthening of the resources” for the EU’s Frontex border agency. The French president concluded by vowing that “everything will be done to find and condemn those responsible” for the tragedy. UPDATE 1930: French Interior Minister Says 31 Dead in the Channel At a press conference from a hospital in Calais, French Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin reported that...
    Paris (CNN Business)Decathlon says it will stop selling kayaks in some stores in northern France in a bid to prevent migrants using them to make the dangerous sea crossing to England.The French sports equipment company said it would stop selling the small boats in stores in the seaside cities of Calais and Boulogne, as well as a surburb of Dunkirk, after reports of migrants going missing while attempting to cross the English Channel in kayaks."Our in-store team members have alerted us to the fact that the boats we sell — kayaks in particular — can be used by migrants looking to cross the Channel," the company said in a statement. "The risks they take are considerable, which leads us to withdraw all of these products from sale in stores in all the sites of the Opal Coast: Decathlon Calais, Grande-Synthe, le Touquet-Paris-Plage and Boulogne-sur-Mer. It will only be possible to buy them online with home delivery," it added. The move comes amid record numbers of migrants crossing the English Channel in small boats to reach British shores.

Being around, it’s always been where my soul is,” Harden said. Harden was one of the first women in the Navy to become a diver. In her 12-year career, she served in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Kuwait, and was awarded the Bronze Star. Ever since she was a little girl, she has wanted to swim the English Channel. “I didn’t want to leave my life knowing there was something on the table that I wanted to do that I didn’t do,” she said. On July 18, at 61 years old, Harden took the plunge after training for over two years. With a pilot boat by her side and friends to cheer her on, she swam over 16 hours in frigid water.

    Nearly 600 illegal boat migrants attempted to cross the English Channel from France over the weekend, with hundreds successfully reaching British shores on Sunday despite the UK sending millions more to the French to stop the dangerous and illegal trade. Some 378 illegal aliens were brought ashore by the British Border Force on Sunday in twelve separate boats. French authorities were able to manage to stop 178 boat migrants from reaching the UK in five attempted crossings. In a statement released on Sunday, Home Secretary Priti Patel said per the BBC: “The British public should be in no doubt of our unwavering determination to stop these dangerous crossings from safe EU countries and take down the evil criminal gangs behind them. “We are utilising all aspects of government to tackle this issue and our significant actions are having an impact.” Earlier last week the number of illegal migrants who were recorded to have successfully reached Britain in 2021 surpassed the figure for the entire year of 2020, with five months still left to run. Predictions have forecasted that between twenty and...
    RISING numbers of migrants are trying to cross the English Channel in dinghies and other small boats. They are making the perilous journey for a better life in the UK. Here's all the details... 2Migrants wrapped in blankets wait to be brought ashore by Border Force officialsCredit: London News Pictures How many people are trying to cross the English Channel? The number of migrants to complete the English Channel crossing in 2021 has hit 8,159 - compared to the record yearly figure of 8,410 in 2020. A total of 430 migrants crossed the English Channel on July 19 - the largest number ever for a single day since the crisis began. The last record day was on September 22, 2020, when 393 made it across in 26 boats. Migrants told The Sun that they believed the risk of dying on a small boat was worth it if they were to achieve their aim of reaching Britain - which some labelled “heaven”. This comes despite Home Secretary Priti Patel's vow in May 2021 she would "slam the door on dangerous criminals" with a fierce border...
    (CNN)The body of a toddler that washed up on Karmøy Island earlier this year has been identified by Norwegian police as that of Artin Irannezhad from Iran, who was previously listed as missing after his family attempted to cross the English Channel by boat in October 2020."It is now positive that the boy who was found is Artin Irannezhad. He is of Iranian origin and disappeared during a shipwreck in the English Channel off the coast of France on October 27, last year," Southwestern Police lead investigator Camilla Tjelle Waage said in a statement on Monday. Artin was 18 months old when he disappeared, police said. Both his parents died in the shipwreck, as well as his two older siblings. The family were among 19 migrants on board the UK-bound boat, which capsized in French waters. Migrants could become the new Covid scapegoats when Europes borders reopenWhen the small body washed up on Norway's Karmøy Island, there were no reports of missing babies in the area and no family had contacted local police, a spokesperson for Southwestern Police told CNN...
    May 9, 1934 in the sky: The plane flying towards London disappears over the English Channel
    A ship above the water. David Morris, a 52-year-old property developer, took this incredible photo while walking on English Channel Beach in southwest England. The photo, which was posted on his Facebook account, went viral on social media last weekend. No, this is not a photo gallery, but a fact that is visible to our eyes. A distorted reality, of course, is that, contrary to appearance, the boat actually floats in the sea. This is a “high channel water” that can be explained by the temperature inversion phenomenon. Normally, cold air stands above hot air (which is cooler at altitude). On this sunny morning, the event turned upside down: cold air was seen trapped in the ocean, warm air above. As a result of looking at an object located below the horizon, special atmospheric conditions that bend light … otherwise “float” like this particular thing. These optical effects are very rare in our latitudes, but occur more frequently in the Arctic. In this region of the north of the world, temperature differences between sea and air often cause a...

    NGOs have demanded Britain totally open its borders to illegal immigration and fly in migrants’ families from across the globe after four people died off the French coast in an attempt to reach UK shores. Groups including Save the Children, which is funded by some of the world’s richest individuals and corporations including Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates, called for the government to expand “safe and legal” migration routes for the effectively unlimited number of people in the world who could seek to “flee” to Britain from “poverty”. The push for open borders, which is being heavily publicised across the United Kingdom and even international media, comes after a family of two adults and two children from Iran died when their boat capsized in the English Channel. A 15-month-old baby who was with them is also missing. Refugee Action declared that the deaths were “entirely inevitable” and that the situation would be repeated unless the government allow would-be migrants from across the globe to resettle in Britain. “If you look at the particular people in this boat, as far as...
    The tragedy porn vultures of the left are wheeling above their latest piece of carrion: a 16-year-old Sudanese migrant — actually 28, according to new reports — drowned while attempting to cross the Channel from France. Of course, they’ll make all the right noises about how tragic and cruel and unnecessary the poor man’s death was. But really he’s just grist to their mill: a handy dead poster boy for their political propaganda campaigns: Utterly heartbreaking. By closing safe routes to seek asylum we are pushing desperate people into dangerous situations with devastating consequences. Our Govt must make protecting and saving lives a priority in their approach to English Channel crossings. https://t.co/cnzuxAzcAu — Sadiq Khan (@SadiqKhan) August 19, 2020 If you think it’s bad now, wait till they discover he was a promising footballer, loved by all who knew him, with ambitions to become a doctor or a lawyer. Forgive my cynicism. I’m sure he was a delightful chap. (I spent a month in the Sudan once, and I’ve rarely encountered such generous, welcoming, friendly people). But I fear that...
