Rishi Sunak has said that the government’s plan to stop people entering the UK illegally in small boats “is starting to work". Speaking at a press conference in Dover, the prime minister said crossings are now down 20% compared to the same period last year. Later in the press conference, Mr Sunak played down the possibility that poor weather may be part of the reason for small-boat crossings having reduced.
