The only two survivors of the horror – an Iraqi and a Somalian – have reportedly told French police the dinghy was hit by a container ship that punctured its thin rubber hull and sank the vessel. It is believed that smugglers in makeshift camps are continuing to offer trips across the Channel, despite the latest incident. This morning, police officers have been photographed evicting migrants from a camp in Calais following talks between regional officials in France. Earlier this week Boris Johnson made a renewed offer of hundreds of British 'boots on the ground' to his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron.

Mohamed Isa Omar, one of two survivors of last week's disaster, tells the BBC he saw people drown. They had been travelling for about three-and-a-half hours when the boat started to sink , Mohamed said. At this point, the occupants who still had phones began to make desperate calls for help. A fellow survivor told Kurdish media they had called both French and English sides of the Channel.

Military sexual misconduct apology coming before end of year, Anand’s office confirms

  Military sexual misconduct apology coming before end of year, Anand’s office confirms More than 18,000 survivors and victims of military sexual misconduct have come forward to submit claims under the class action settlement process, which closes to claims Wednesday. The apology promised two years ago to survivors and victims of military sexual misconduct will come before the end of this year, with a firm date coming "shortly," the defence minister's office confirms.

A survivor of the Channel crossing tragedy last night claimed authorities on both sides of the Channel refused to rescue the migrants as their boat was sinking . Mohammed Shekha, 21, detailed a shocking series of desperate calls to French and British authorities and claimed both denied responsibility for the rescue. Last night, Mr Shekha, one of only two survivors , said the boat’s occupants held each other’s hands in the water before succumbing to the icy sea. In an interview with Rudaw, the Kurdish state broadcaster, he said 33 people went to the shore near Dunkirk at 8pm on Tuesday.

Identifying the victims of the Channel migrant tragedy is a 'very complicated' process that could take weeks, according to humanitarian organisations involved in the efforts. DNA tests are being carried out on the bodies of the 27 people who died after their dinghy sank while crossing to Britain last Wednesday, on what was the deadliest day of the migration crisis. Mr Shekha, one of only two survivors , said the boat’s occupants held each other’s hands in the water before succumbing to the icy sea.

the French and British authorities implicated by their boat takes the water. After several hours spent trying to scoop, migrants decide to call relief. But according to Mohammed,

the French and the British returned the ball tirelessly. The young man explains that they first called the French police but after having indicated their position, they answer them that they are in the British waters. The French can not therefore intervene. Another passenger then calls in Great Britain: it is referred to France.

delivered to their fate, the passengers stand by the hand so as not to sink, says Mohammed again. Then they "lost hope," he says. They fell into the water and gave up life.
