In France, an investigation into premeditated murder is under way after a migrant died in sub-zero conditions while trying to cross the English Channel.
The Sudanese man was pulled unconscious from the water in the early hours of Friday as he and others tried to reach the UK.
When he was 20 years old, he was pronounced dead after French rescue teams took him back to shore.
A total of 32 people suffering from hypothermia have been rescued at Berck near Calais, authorities said.
A prosecutor in Boulogne-sur-Mer said a murder investigation had been launched.
The death was recorded less than two months later at least 27 people died when their boat sank off the French coast.
In 2022, more than 450 people embarked on life-threatening voyages in small boats.
Several border force vessels were operating in UK waters off the coast of Kent on Friday.
Immigrant staff brought about 35 people to shore.
At least 271 people aboard 10 small boats arrived in England on Thursday.
Mike Adamson, executive director of the British Red Cross, said there were “no easy answers” to the problem.
He added: “However, we urge the government to reconsider its plans to make access to the UK’s asylum system more difficult.
“This should start with ambitious plans for new safe routes and a commitment to relocate 10,000 people a year.”
Steve Valdez-Symonds, Amnesty International’s director for the rights of refugees and migrants in the UK, said the latest death was made all the more unbearable by government refusals on both sides of the English Channel to address the needs and rights of forced people. try these dangerous journeys “.
This was called for by Interior Minister Priti Patel more cooperation with Europe in an effort to solve the problem.
