Officers from Britain’s National Crime Agency are planning to join North African countries to stop people traffickers.

LBC New reports that the police officers have been tasked with breaking up people-smuggling gangs with security forces in the region.

According to The Times, the Italian Government has predicted that not less than 400,000 migrants will seek to travel to Europe in the fast-approaching summer.

There are concerns that a rise in Mediterranean crossings will translate to an increase in people crossing the English Channel in the coming months.

A record number of people crossed the Channel last year. But less than 7,000 have been detected so far this year.

The UK’s immigration minister Robert Jenrick is making trips to North Africa and Europe soon to discuss with international partners the challenges of organised immigration crime.

He is scheduled to visit Algeria, Tunisia and France as the Home Office is launching a campaign to deter Albanians from getting to the UK in small boats.

Opposition critics and charities have said the plan is just a trick intended to attract attention.
