People traffickers are in the news again after three people were arrested trying to smuggle migrants into the UK - on a plane.
The British pilot of a four-seat Cessna plane was arrested, along with two other UK nationals, at an airport in Calais before it took off.
Four Albanian migrants were found on-board and it is understood they had been due to fly to these shores. An investigation into the incident by French authorities is underway.
Yet again we see that ruthless people traffickers will stop at nothing to break migrants into Britain.
We've cracked down on smuggling through lorries, dinghies and small boats. Now they are using light aircraft.
We cannot allow this latest extreme tactic to take off. We must smash the trafficking gangs and end their evil trade of modern slavery.
