THE Mongolian asylum seeker towed to Dover in his blue rubber dinghy has been detained by the Border Force.

The 36-year-old crossed 12 miles of the English Channel from Calais on Friday afternoon before being picked up by Dover Lifeboat. The illegal immigrant was located eight miles south of the port in the world’s busiest shipping lane at around 2.30pm. Dover Lifeboat deputy launching authority Pete Legg said: “He wasn’t really in any difficulty but he was getting tired.”

The RNLI volunteers handed the man over to the Port of Dover Police and Border Force when they arrived back at the harbour. A Home Office spokeswoman said: “A 36-year-old man from Mongolia remains in Home Office detention. “Where someone is found to have no right to remain in the UK we will take action to remove them.”

Last month, Afghan migrant Asif Hussein Khai, 23, tried to reach the UK on a raft made of planks of wood and a bedsheet Khai was spotted floating near Calais by P&O’s 47,000-tonne Spirit of Britain and picked up by the French Coastguard.
