Britain has revealed that it will now send migrants and asylum-seekers who cross the channel thousands of miles away to Rwanda.

This is coming under a controversial deal announced on Thursday as the government tries to clamp down on record numbers of people making the perilous journey.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson revealed this in a speech delivered near Dover in South-eastern England.

He said anyone entering the UK illegally as well as those who have arrived illegally since January 1 may now be relocated to Rwanda.

He added that Rwanda will have the capacity to resettle tens of thousands of people in the years ahead.

The British Prime Minister referred to Rwanda as one of the safest countries in the world, globally recognised for its record of welcoming and integrating migrants.
