A French boatyard owner filmed by ITV News selling migrants dinghies to sail across the Channel to Britain has been sentenced to 36 months in jail.
Desreux appeared in court last week charged with 'helping the entry circulation or stay of an alleged illegal migrant between 1 October 2018 and 19 March 2019'.
ITV News learned he had sold 39 boats to migrants over some months.
He was given a 36 month jail term, suspended for 18 months. But he is not yet behind bars as another judge can review the sentence.
Outside court in Boulogne-sur-Mer, northern France, ITV News asked him how much he had made from helping migrants and whether he had any regrets. He replied in French that he could not understand the questions.
Desreux operated a boatyard near Lille. He was charging groups of migrants €4,500 for a dinghy and engine - well above the market rate.
They were then filmed via a thermal imaging camera hauling the small boat across a beach in the dark.
ITV News cameras were also on board a fishing vessel as the migrants' boat was intercepted by a British Border Force boat as they tried to reach England.
