London: A record number of at least 430 migrants have illegally crossed the Channel to the UK in a single day, the government said on Tuesday, as it vowed a crackdown. Monday’s figure surpassed a previous daily high of 416 set in September 2020, and came as UK lawmakers debated new legislation that would overhaul asylum rules and impose stricter jail terms for both migrants and people-smugglers.
