Tragedy as children and adults drown while trying to cross Channel – BBC News
An attempt by migrants to cross the Channel from France has ended in tragedy, with two adults and two children losing their lives when their boat sank off the French coast.
The boat capsized near Dunkirk and the French authorities mounted a major search and rescue operation. 15 people were rescued and taken to hospital. Those on board were from Iran.
More than 7,400 migrants have reached the UK in small boats this year, a ib increase on 2019.
