Since the beginning of August, more than 1,000 people have made it across the English Channel from the French coastal town of Calais. Never before, have so many refugees arrived via the channel across the channel.
This is putting to the test the British government's main Brexit promises: to take control of the UK's borders. Now the Royal Navy and the air force are being deployed to stop migrants from crossing the English channel. And additionally the British government has come under criticism after newspaper reports that it's considering plans to house asylum-seekers offshore on remote islands.
The most terrifying words in the English language are: I'm from the government and I'm here to help.
