A boat load of suspected illegal immigrants were found floundering off the coast at Dymchurch (just down the road) late yesterday. Their rigid inflatable had been taking on water and they phoned home (Calais) for help. Two lifeboats and coastguards responded to their plight and they were taken back to Dover for interrogation.
The first of many to be expected over the coming summer months but I suspect had they been carrying fishing rods they could have got away by being legitimate fishermen on a day trip. Oh well!!
