Nine presumed migrants from Iran were in a small boat near the port of Folkestone Meridian


In a small boat near the port of Folkestone, nine suspected migrants were found.

Officials of the border forces said they presented themselves as Iranian citizens. They reported that the police said they were in trouble shortly after Sunday morning at 7:30 in the afternoon they came to the rocks near the port.

The HM Coast Guard has confirmed that it is helping border guards, and the group has now moved to Dover. The enforcement of immigration is now carrying out a criminal investigation.

This is the latest incident in which more than 60 alleged migrants came to the United Kingdom via Kent this week.

17 alleged migrants were aboard the French fishing boat when it arrived in Dover on Tuesday. The next day, three boats with 22 alleged migrants, including a toddler, were picked up along the coast of Dover and Ramsgate. On Friday he was found dirty in Samphire Hoe, near Dover, with seven people.
According to recent events, the Ministry of the Interior said officials had stepped up deployment on the southeast coast.

"We are alert to the risk posed by people who attempt to illegally enter the United Kingdom through small boats. This year we have increased the number of coastal patrol vessels and, in the light of recent events, accelerated deployment on the southeast coast."
