A body was recovered in the English Channel just days after Border Force officials were warned they may be breaking the law unless those migrants crossing to UK shores ‘consent’ to having their boats turned around.   

Sussex Police said the body of a man was recovered by Coastguard officials in the mid-English channel on Saturday afternoon and brought to Eastbourne as officers work to ID the victim. 

It follows the death of a 27-year-old man aboard a boat carrying 40 people in August – who was airlifted to hospital after a huge air and sea rescue operation in the Channel.
