Thirty-one people headed for the UK have drowned in the English Channel near Calais after their boat sank.

The International Organization for Migration said it was the biggest single loss of life in the Channel since it began collecting data in 2014.

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson said he was “appalled” by what happened, adding the UK would leave “no stone unturned” to stop human trafficking gangs.

Newsnight’s Policy Editor Lewis Goodall reports.

For those who don’t know, they purposely sink their own boat in hopes the Coast Guard will take them into custody at which point they’ll file for asylum. Quite tragic actually.

Those who are deliberately encouraging this behaviour are responsible for those deaths. And that means the UK government.
