UK to pay £55m to French border patrols to fund migrant clampdown
The Guardian says the UK taxpayer is to hand over a further €62.7m (£55m) to France to fund another clampdown on small-boat crossings of the Channel, the Home Office has revealed.
The home secretary, Priti Patel, agreed to pay the sum as part of a deal reached with the French interior minister, Gérald Darmanin, on Tuesday.
At least 430 people crossed the Dover Strait on Monday, a record for a single day.
