Channel migrants
Kent
Two boats thought to be carrying nearly 20 migrants have been intercepted off the Kent coast after a record 86 attempted the crossing in one day.
Coastguard crews have been dealing with two vessels off the coast of Kent.
The BBC understands there were six people on the first boat, and up to 13 on the second, with one migrant airlifted to hospital.
Eighty-six people attempted the crossing on Tuesday with Border Force officials intercepting six small boats.
It was thought to be the highest number of people found in the Channel in a single day.
The Home Office has not commented on the latest crossing attempts.
