Nigel Farage was right, migrants are throwing their mobile phones in the English Channel heading to Britain.

Nigel Farage has fired back at people who allege he lied when he said that illegal migrants crossing the English Channel in tiny boats dump their mobile phones into the water. 

To refute claims that he was lying, Mr Farage provided a video demonstrating that what he stated was true. 

Multiple migrants aboard an inflatable boat are seen in the video dumping their cellphones into the water as they journey towards Britain. 

The GB News anchor Nigel questioned this action in a tweet, saying: “Why would legitimate refugees with nothing to hide throw their mobile phones into the sea?”

In full, Nigel Farage wrote on Twitter: “Lots of tweets saying I made up a story about migrants throwing their phones into the Channel yesterday.”

“Well here is the exclusive footage…”

“Why would legitimate refugees with nothing to hide throw their mobile phones into the sea?”
