A man on a kayak had to be rescued by British authorities yesterday after attempting to cross the channel alone.

A further 288 people crossed the English Channel on Friday, August 5, taking the total number of migrants who reached the UK this week to 1,372.

Five small boats made the crossing during the most recent 24-hour period, government figures show.

This includes one migrant who was rescued yesterday morning after attempting to travel along by kayak.

He was picked up by British Border Force officers at around 9am, five miles from the English coast, GB News reports.

Earlier this week, a new daily record was set for 22 as 696 people made the dangerous journey on Monday, according to figures from the Ministry of Defence.
