Podcast: Border Force to look after asylum-seeking children as council reaches capacity

Any more unaccompanied asylum-seeking children arriving on Kent’s shores will be now looked after by Border Force, after Kent County Council admitted they can no longer safely accommodate more children. 


It follows years of warnings to the government that it was close to capacity, but now demand has tipped over due to the increase in boats crossing the Channel.

We’ll hear from Bridget Chapman from the Kent Refugee Action Network. 

Also in the podcast: more reaction from teachers, students and universities after the government’s U-turn in A-Level exam gradings.
