The UK will give France almost £500m over three years to help stop migrants crossing the Channel in small boats.
The cash was announced at a summit in Paris between UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and President Emmanuel Macron, who said France would also contribute.
The money will go towards an extra 500 officers and a new detention centre in France, but this will not be fully operational until the end of 2026.
The UK had planned to pay France around £63m this year to tackle the problem.
This new package appears to at least double that amount, with the UK pledging £120m in 2023-24.

France will also step up its funding of enforcement but has not said by how much.


what's the likelihood of it being Nil euro

If it was the reverse, and folks were desperate to leave the UK to go to France, how desperate would we be to stop them?

Should we be paying all that money, probably not, but it's small beer to the money we were paying the EU to tell us what to do all the time.
