Sources close to the investigation told The Times that three of the boys allegedly restrained the girl and acted as lookouts to prevent her from running away from her while the fourth boy raped her. Late last week, one of the boys, aged 15, was arrested on suspicion of rape and the other three, aged between 13 and 16, were arrested on suspicion of facilitating the attack.

A Kent Police spokesman said he is “investigating a report of a sexual offense involving a teenage girl and a teenage boy in Dover on the afternoon of Monday 6 February 2023.” “Four children were arrested as part of the investigation and have since been released on bail while investigations continue.”

The controversial scheme has been embroiled in legal challenges and so far no flights carrying migrants to the African nation have left. Yesterday Sutton Coldfield Conservative MP Andrew Mitchell said the scheme was worth exploring but was not the “full answer” and argued it will have only marginal benefit in stopping small ships crossing the Channel.

He also rejected the idea that the UK could withdraw from the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) over plans to tackle the problem of small boats carrying migrants across the Channel.
