Border Security Will Be Increased During Olympic Games
Claude Gueant and Theresa May came out to see these checkpoints near the Channel Tunnel. Here they saw that sniffer dogs and police are in place to help find hidden migrants and drugs that try to enter Britain by way of the Channel.
According to these two ministers, the joint border patrols have really helped to drastically cut illegal entry into Britain. The biggest improvement that it has had is to stop stowaways from being able to enter Britain by way of trucks.
Despite all of this, some experts have went ahead and stressed some very big concerns for general security when the Olympic Games hit London. To answer these concerns, May said that partnerships have really helped to create one of the strongest borders in the whole world. It is this enhanced cooperation that will help to keep Britain safe during the Olympic Games.
She did point out that this enhanced partnership has already contributed to a 70 percent decrease in the number of migrants that are able to illegally cross the border last year. This is a fight that the UK is going to continue to try to win. Either way, she did say that the UK has to continue to look ahead to see what might happen next.
