The first rescue operation began around 1:00 GMT - after a boat, carrying 11 people onboard, including two young children, crashed. 

Later, another 20 migrants were rescued near Dunkirk, 40 km east of Calais, including a pregnant woman whose boat began to leak water. A customs patrol boat has brought everyone alive and well to the French coast.
