This is the moment a group of migrants celebrated as they landed on Broadstairs beach in Kent in the presence of shocked sunbathers.
The group of 20 people, including three children and a baby, had made the dangerous 30-mile journey across the English Channel on a dinghy.
Their sudden appearance startled beachgoers in Broadstairs on the northeast Kent coastline, a further 10 miles from the usual boat landings on the south stretch of the country from Calais.
Sally Jones Rowell and her daughter Lydia Jones, 13, were at their beach hut when they saw them arrive, one man putting his arms in the air, with the kind-hearted teen giving them crisps and beverages.
The group climbed up steps onto the promenade on Saturday afternoon.
The baby was only a few months old and one of the children were about three years old.
Sally Jones Rowell said that they were at their beach hut in Stone Bay when a boat of migrants came up on the beach. She said it was essentially young men and a pretty expensive boat, with several young children.
She said that most of them moved off in every direction, and they gave the children packs of crisps.
A Kent Police spokesperson said that Kent Police officers helped Border Force after a report of suspected transients in Stone Bay, Broadstairs, at 1.50 pm.
It comes after it was established that more migrants crossed the Channel on Saturday than on any previous single day, amid claims France has lost control of their border.
A record-breaking 828 people had to be rescued or intercepted making the perilous crossing in 30 vessels.
The Home Office eventually confirmed the figures on Monday evening, some two days after the influx of immigrants.
Saturday’s figure smashed the previous daily record of 592 arrivals set on August 12, and it also makes it the busiest weekend of migrant crossings ever, exceeding the 571 who landed on July 10 and 11.
It’s the fifth time this year the figure has been higher than 2020’s record day of 416 migrants.
On August 12, 592 migrants landed in 16 boats, 475 in 15 boats on August 5, 482 in 21 boats the day before (August 4) and 430 appeared in 17 boats on July 19.
More than 12,000 transients have now crossed the Dover Strait, one of the world’s busiest shipping routes, by vessel this year.
So far, 12,427 have arrived in 2021 compared to the previous record of 8,410 in 2020.
Sadly, we are only a small island and we just don’t have the room for all these migrants.
The French need to stop this, but they don’t appear to have control of their borders, and it seems that nothing is being done to stop these migrants from arriving on our beaches and demanding five-star hotels to stay in.
It’s hard enough for UK citizens to apply for benefits that they’re entitled to, yet these transients are coming over and manage to instantly get aid and benefits that they’ve never worked for or contributed to.
And Boris Johnson doesn’t seem to have any intention of stopping this, and it seems that our no 1 enemy is our very own government.
I don’t know what the answer is because no one in parliament, whether it’s the Conservatives, Labour, LibDem or Greens gives a damn about this country, its way of life, culture or traditions, but sadly this is what happens when a bunch of brainless gullible sheep vote.
People are already suffering because there aren’t enough services, the NHS is overwhelmed, and social care is none existent, yet we’re still taking in these migrants with no skills and no right to be here and giving them everything we don’t give our own citizens.
