Channel crossings: Priti Patel authorises turning back of migrant boats

BBC News says Priti Patel has authorised Border Force to turn boats carrying migrants back at sea to prevent them reaching the UK.

More than 1,500 migrants have crossed the English Channel by boat this week.

The home secretary and her French counterpart discussed the issue on Wednesday but failed to agree new measures to prevent the crossings.

Her plan to force boats back into French waters is also likely to be opposed by French authorities who consider it to be dangerous.

Under international maritime law, people at risk of losing their lives at sea must be rescued.
