Four dead, 43 rescued after boat capsizes in English Channel

Policy Correspondent

Four people are dead after their boat capsized in the English Channel early this morning.

Forty-three others were rescued – thirty of them pulled from the freezing waters. Politicians from all sides were quick to condemn the people smuggling gangs that supply such boats.

Our Policy Correspondent Paul McNamara reports from Dover.
