He disclosed he had called a cross-government meeting to see if there was more other departments could do, dispatched Caroline Nokes, the immigration minister, for talks with her French counterpart and was working closely with the National Crime Agency (NCA).“There’s a particular concern about why we are seeing a number of Iranians on those boats. Our evidence from the NCA is that there’s organised gang criminal activity going on there,” said Mr Javid.On Tuesday night it emerged people smugglers are telling migrants that they must reach Britain before “the borders shut properly” after Brexit. Mr Javid, the Home Secretary, said co-operation with France was critical to solving the crisisCredit:Aaron Chown/PA Mr Javid said co-operation with France was critical to solving the crisis, noting they did not always accept the migrants had come from them and asked for proof. “Those boats are without a doubt coming from France so they have a very important role to play in this,” he said.

A Border Force cutter could be pulled back from the Mediterranean to rescue increasing numbers of migrants trying to cross the Channel in tiny boats, Sajid Javid revealed on Tuesday.The Home Secretary told MPs he was considering deploying the cutter from its humanitarian mission helping with the wider migrant crisis in the Mediterranean to cope with the surge in migrants, often with children, now crossing the Channel.He disclosed some 100 migrants had risked their lives attempting to reach the UK in 10 boats in the past three months. There are fears people could die in the Channel as the weather gets worse.Mr Javid warned the deployment would “become a humanitarian and rescue mission and there’s a risk that kind of activity can encourage more people to cross the Channel.”Only two of Britain’s five high-speed cutters are currently patrolling the Channel to stop and rescue migrants trying to reach the UK from mainland Europe. A third is on standby and two are in the Mediterranean and Aegean. A smuggler, secretly filmed by an undercover BBC reporter, told migrants at a makeshift camp in France: “When [the] UK is out of Europe, the borders will be shut properly. This jungle will be cleared. They will put everyone in jail.”The migrants, who are being charged up to £4,000 by illegal smugglers to make the dangerous journey to the UK, are understood to be using their mobile phones to navigate their way to the Kent coast.On Tuesday nine were spotted in a 3m long vessel by a fishing crew off Dover. However, not all boats that depart succeed in reaching the UK, and at least 30 migrants have been intercepted in French waters since November 23. A Home Office spokesman said: “Nobody should put their life at risk attempting to smuggle themselves into the UK across the Channel.“We take these crossings very seriously and this week two men were jailed for eight years each for smuggling people into the UK in small boats.“We have stepped up deployments of our coastal patrol vessels along the South East coast in light of recent events and are continuing to monitor the situation closely.”MPs have urged the government to borrow vessels from the Navy, saying Britain has two cutters patrolling 7,723 miles of coastline to Italy’s 600 responsible for its 4,722 miles.
