UK, France sign new deal to curb Channel refugee crossings

The United Kingdom and France have signed a new agreement to try to stop the undocumented movement of people across the Channel, upping patrols and technology to close off a dangerous route refugees and migrants use in hopes of reaching the UK on small boats.

UK Home Secretary Priti Patel said that, under the deal signed on Saturday, the number of officers patrolling French beaches would double and new equipment, including drones and radar, would be employed.
