LONDON, Nov 25 — Britain will do whatever is necessary to help secure the French coast to stop migrants risking their lives trying to cross the English Channel, interior minister Priti Patel said today.

“I’ve offered to work with France to put more officers on the ground and do absolutely whatever is necessary to secure the area so that vulnerable people do not risk their lives by getting into unseaworthy boats,” Patel told parliament after the death of 27 migrants in the Channel yesterday. — Reuters
