The Home Office is planning to fly at least 1,000 migrants who crossed the English Channel back to Italy, Germany and France in a series of weekly flights.
More than 6,000 refugees have crossed from France in crowded dinghies so far this year.
Officials have described the crossings as 'thoroughly unacceptable,' as Home Secretary Priti Patel plans to fly the arrivals back to Europe on a weekly basis, according to The Telegraph.
The Immigration Enforcement Secretariat said the Government and Ms Patel are 'equally frustrated by the severity of the situation'.

The Government office warned it cannot take simple measures such as returning migrants after intercepting them at sea, due to legal constraints.
Talks are ongoing to get more UK funded officers on French beaches to prevent people trying to make the dangerous crossing.sonos
