Rise in illegal immigrants intercepted at Northern Ireland ports

Operation Gull checks domestic flights and ferries into and out of Northern Ireland to intercept illegal immigrants going to and coming from the Republic of Ireland by way of the land border

The number of illegal immigrants intercepted at ports in Northern Ireland trying to reach other parts of the UK has risen significantly in the last three years measured.

Figures from the Home Office show that 468 people were intercepted in 2014/15, including those who crossed the border with the Irish Republic.

This is up 71% up on the 274 total in 2012/13, although the numbers are small compared to the crisis in Calais and the Mediterranean.
