At least 30 migrants, including five women and one young girl, have died crossing the Channel from France when their boat sank off the port of Calais, authorities said, in the deadliest single disaster on the intensively-used route. The French interior ministry said in a statement that French patrol vessels found bodies and unconscious people in the water after a fisherman sounded the alarm. The disaster, the worst single loss of life recorded in recent times from migrant crossings in the Channel, comes as tensions grow between London and Paris over the record numbers of people crossing, with Britain urging tougher action from France to stop them making the voyage.
