New powers have been introduced to help stop illegal immigrants from entering the South.
Immigration officers can now stop and board any vessel they suspect is breaking the law.
At the weekend, 18 Albanian migrants were found in a dinghy off the Kent coast. Their boat was taking on water less than a mile off Dymchurch, close to Folkestone.
Increased security at the Channel Tunnel has led to more migrants attempting other routes into Britain.
Watch Charlotte Wilkins' report below:
Ceremonies have been taking place across the South marking a century since one of the deadliest naval battles ever fought.
100 years ago to the day, 250 British and German ships carrying 100,000 sailors were involved in the Battle of Jutland in the North Sea off Denmark.
Today in Southsea 100 sailors led by the Collingwood band of the Royal Marines marched to the naval war memorial on the common where a ceremony paid tribute to the thousands of men from the city who lost their lives.
Some of their relatives have also been remembering by loaning family artefacts to a new exhibition about the battle. Richard Jones has been speaking to some of them.
