Around 50 migrants landed on a beach today after crossing the English Channel crammed into a single dinghy.
Some members of the group had to be supported as they walked up the shingle beach in 25C heat.
Others raised their hands in celebration at surviving the dangerous 21-mile crossing.
The group, which included men, women and young children, were then detained by Border Force officials.
Recent stable weather has seen increasing numbers of migrants attempting to make their way to the UK.
On Sunday 241 people arrived aboard eight boats.

Today, the large dinghy is believed to have left northern France or Belgium before arriving on Dungeness Beach, Kent.
An RNLI boat shepherded the vessel ashore at around 1pm.
Some of the children in the group were so young they had to be carried up the beach.
A second group of around 40 migrants were also seen coming ashore on Monday on a boat at Kingsdown near Deal.

Police were called to the beach but it is understood some fled the scene before the authorities arrived.
The Home Office are yet to confirm official numbers for Monday’s crossing.
But data suggests that so far in July more than 1,850 migrants have succeeded in reaching Britain on board small boats.
This is more than the total for the whole of 2019.
In 2020 a total of 8,417 crossings were made, a figure that could be eclipsed in 2021 by the end of this month.
A spokesman for the Maritime and Coastguard Agency said: “HM Coastguard has sent Hastings and Dungeness RNLI lifeboats to assist Border Force with an incident in the Channel.
“We are committed to safeguarding life around the seas and coastal areas of this country as set out in international maritime law and the obligations of the Safety of Life at Sea Convention.
“We are only concerned with preservation of life, rescuing those in trouble and bringing them safely back to shore, where they will be handed over to the relevant partner emergency services or authorities.”
