Sajid Javid has announced patrol vessels will be brought back from overseas to the Channel as part of efforts to stem migrant crossings to UK shores via small boats.

The latest crossing over the festive period saw 12 Iranians – including a child – land on the beach at Lydd-on-Sea, Kent, at 6am on New Year’s Eve.

The Home Office released figures to reveal 539 migrants have attempted to travel to the UK on small boats this year, with around 80% making their attempts in the last three months of 2018.
