UK Royal Air Force sends plane to help monitor migrant…

LONDON, Aug 12 – Britain’s Royal Air Force said on Wednesday it had sent a maritime patrol aircraft to help support border control operations in the English Channel after an increase in migrants seeking to cross from France.

“The aircraft will track vessels and pass information to the Border Force who will then take any appropriate further action,” a Ministry of Defense statement said. It replaces a different aircraft which undertook similar operations in recent days. (Reporting by Costas Pitas, writing by William James, editing by Estelle Shirbon)
