French maritime services have rescued 65 migrants in the waters of the English Channel who were trying to get to the UK illegally by boat. It was announced on Saturday by the prefecture of the English Channel and North Sea on the results of the rescue operation.

According to a communiqué published on Twitter of the prefecture, the Regional Monitoring and Rescue Operation Center at Cape Grie-Nay was informed on Friday by a patrol team about a boat stranded near the commune of Gravlin.

According to marine services, the boat was carrying a total of 65 migrants, including 17 minors, including two infants. All the illegals were given first aid, and then they were taken to the port of Boulogne-sur-Mer, where the migrants were handed over to the border police and fire and rescue service of the region.

Paris, along with London, has for several years been struggling with the problem of illegal immigrants attempting to cross the English Channel and Pas de Calais in inflatable or homemade boats to reach Great Britain. Despite efforts by the authorities to solve this problem, the number of refugees is constantly growing. According to British services, more than 28,000 people entered the United Kingdom illegally using this route in 2021.

According to earlier forecasts circulated by the British Border Agency, in 2022 there will be another record in the number of illegals, many of whom are citizens of Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq. Earlier, it was reported that more than 25,000 people have reached British shores from France across the English Channel since the beginning of the year.
