The Conservative MP said the Home Office was not taking the matter "seriously enough".

He wrote: "Unfortunately, this means that there are no easy answers. I am calling for our Border Force cutters now cruising the Mediterranean to return to United Kingdom waters and form a new Dover Patrol to take back control of our borders immediately".

The six Iranian men were discovered on a beach in Kent along with a rigid-hulled inflatable boat they are believed to have traveled in from France, British officials said.

Border Force officials were called at 7.30am and detained the men who were handed over to be processed by immigration officers after receiving a medial assessment.

Tackling organised criminal gangs behind attempted Channel crossings is an "operational priority" for the NCA, who are working with their French counterparts.

Channel crossings were not a major problem in recent years but started to increase in November. "Ultimately the buck stops with the Home Secretary".

She told the Guardian: "There's no question that, with Brexit and also with the approach of the meaningful vote in January, people are being whipped up about migration issues, because the government thinks this is the best way of frightening people to vote for their deal".
