From the article.

A total of 378 migrants were detained by the UK authorities in 12 incidents on Sunday, while 178 others were stopped from reaching the UK by French ships in five further incidents, according to the Home Office.

So the 178 who were stopped by the French will be back today or tommorow.

More than 700 people succeeded in crossing the Channel on Monday and Tuesday, many of whom landed on Dungeness beach in Kent. Border Force vessels and French warships were active in the Dover Strait on Wednesday, bringing dozens of people into the port.

Border Force and RNLI vessels were full so the French Navy also acted as a taxi service. Perhaps thats where the extra millions we are giving to the French is going to. Reimbursing fuel costs and taxi fares.

In a statement released on Sunday, the home secretary said: “The British public should be in no doubt of our unwavering determination to stop these dangerous crossings from safe EU countries and take down the evil criminal gangs behind them.”

Yes we know Priti, you are doing a great job so far. Those people smuggling gangs are probably toasting you with bottles of Krug at this very moment. I bet that you are even on their Christmas card list.

There ya go go, didn’t I tell you?
It’s about removing the danger from the crossings, we don’t want a mass casualty event in the Channel.

Earlier post 23795 on this thread refers.
This 'unwavering determination' appears to be wavering.
To repeat a couple of relevant points from just last month.
It does appear to be yet another problem to filed in the NCA/Home Office "too difficult to deal with tray."
There have been quite a few over the years.
Their own figures quote 300 live human trafficking operations were ongoing in the UK up to August 2020, but only 2 arrests of major players and 5 minicab drivers for shuffling the illegals around?
Really, with national assets deployed in real-time?

Or perhaps we are seeing a total lack of effort or investigative ability in the UK at that professional level?
 

French cannot deploy drones to search for migrants because of privacy rules​


A privacy ruling has stymied French police ability to search the beaches of Northern France for migrants seeking to cross Channel

The French cannot deploy its squadron of drones to track migrants because of privacy laws, it emerged this weekend.

The French police’s efforts to search for migrants on the north France coast before they leave for the UK is being hampered by legal ruling that their use potentially breaches privacy.

They have been caught in the backwash of a ruling by France’s official privacy watchdog, known as CNIL, that found the French Government had been using drone cameras to enforce Coronavirus restrictions and for other law enforcement purposes "outside of any legal framework.”

Privacy activists feared that the drone monitoring could serve as a trial run for more-expansive surveillance programs. They mounted a legal action and secured a ruling by France's highest court in May to suspend the practices in Paris.

However, privacy groups said French authorities carried on despite the ruling, continuing to deploy drones at protests, leading to the ban on their use by the CNIL which applies nationally.

The move comes as Priti Patel, the Home Secretary, announced last week an extra £54 million for the French which included increasing the use of surveillance technology including drones.


Is Priti gonna get a partial refund on the £54 million?...

We have German Forklifts with cameras on.
The cameras aren't allowed to be fitted in France or Germany for the same reasons

Google Street view too in Germany.
They have very strict privacy laws, no, not the Steve Laws, after their unpleasant experiences in 1933-45.

Talking of drones, I see the Engerland nutters are now looking at flying a done over Dover harbour to film the arrivals as they are all on legal naughty steps.
I suspect they haven’t joined the still breaking the law dots .
