Dave Smith
In Depth Story of a Refugee Journey

This article is perhaps the most penetrating piece of journalism on what awaits those who cross the channel from France in small boats. It unveils the reality of being housed in old army barracks, and how that impacts the asylum seekers housed there.
It also examines public perceptions driven by tabloid newspapers, as well as local reaction to the migrants, both negative and positive.

Most of all, it lifts the lid on why people take such dangerous journeys, and puts into perspective the numbers making it to the UK, in comparison with other European countries.

It's a lengthy read, but well worth the time, especially if you have questions about the motives of those risking the dangerous journey across the English channel.
