There has been a large increase in the number of illegal immigrants detained or arrested by police at Dover.

Some 563 were held or arrested by Port of Dover police officers last year – up from 148 in 2013, a BBC Radio Kent Freedom of Information request shows.

The figures come days after dozens of migrants attempted to storm the Channel Tunnel’s Calais terminal.
