LONDON (Reuters) – The illegal crossing of migrants from France to Britain is unacceptable, so action must be taken to prevent smugglers from exploiting people who risk the perilous journey across the Channel in small boats, a said a young British minister on Monday.

“We have an unacceptable situation with many migrants crossing the Channel right now,” young health minister Helen Whately told Sky News.

“We act.”
