British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has called on France to take back people who crossed the channel to reach the United Kingdom.

He wrote to French President Emmanuel Macron to set out steps to prevent more deaths after 27 people drowned when their boat capsized on Wednesday.

The BBC's Chris Mason reports.


He's suggesting joint patrols in boats in the channel, joint patrols in the air over the channel and also joint patrols on the French side on French beaches.

The other big thing he wants is what’s known as a returns policy, in other words, that those people who arrive on small boats are taken straight back.

He wants an agreement in the long term with the European Union, in the shorter term with France.
