Migration: Why do the UK’s borders continue to divide opinion?

The number of migrants reaching the Kent coast has registered record levels this year, but it’s just a small fraction of the number of irregular arrivals, the Sky News data team has found.  

But what is life like in the refugee camps? How do asylum seekers gain access to the boats that they travel in across the English Channel? And what are the legal implications of Home Secretary Priti Patel’s proposed “turnaround tactics”?

In this episode, host Gillian Joseph is joined by Kieran Devine from the Sky News Data and Forensics Unit, correspondent Ashna Hurynag, and Mary Stretch from charity Calais Light.
