At least 31 people have died after their boat capsized while attempting to cross the English Channel.

Five women and a young girl are among the victims.

It is the worst-ever incident involving migrants in the Channel.

The rescue operation has continued into the night with two people having been pulled from the water alive.

The French Interior Minister said human trafficking is to blame for the tragedy, calling authorities to do more to fight criminal rings.
