At least 15 suspected migrants have been brought into the port of Dover by Border Force Officials, Sky News can reveal.
It comes after a co-ordinated search and rescue was carried out into a number of incidents off Kent, in a joint operation by HM Coastguard and Border Force.
Sky News saw three boats arrive at the south coast port, one carrying six people and the other two nine.
The first arrived at about 6.20am and the others soon after dawn.
It is believed there may have been more boats intercepted.
The people in the boats were brought to shore with their heads covered, many wrapped in grey blankets and at least one in orange emergency clothing.
