Priti Patel orders border patrols to ‘push back’ migrant boats to France as UK offers Paris a PLANE to keep watch on the coast on top of £54m funding

The Daily Mail: Priti Patel has sanctioned new ‘pushback’ tactics to stop migrant boats in the Channel and turn them back to France amid crunch talks over crossings.

The Home Secretary has ordered officials to rewrite maritime laws to allow Border Force to turn boats around, forcing them to be dealt with by French authorities.

But Paris has already warned that the step could have a ‘negative impact’ on the cooperation. It has also emerged that Britain has offered use of a plane to help monitor the coast, but France has yet to decide whether to accept.

Some 14,000 migrants are now thought to have arrived in Britain via the Channel this year – with Tory MPs demanding Paris ‘steps up to the plate’ and prevents the crossings.
