Starmer hits out at Patel over migrant crossings

Keir Starmer has hit out at home secretary Priti Patel in an interview to the BBC.

The Labour leader said he was “sick of the home secretary playing to the headlines on this, with grand statements about what she is going to do… but actually not achieving anything”.

Patel earlier made a statement to the Commons, saying she would work with France to solve the issues. However she was called out over the government’s failure to take 5,000 asylum seekers.
