£43,500 on Kebabs for Migrants
The Home Office have spent tens of thousands of pounds on kebabs to feed criminals who had just illegally crossed the Channel.
Officials ordered 3,000 chicken shish for £14.50 from four Turkish restaurants dotted across Kent as well hundreds of pizzas from the Domino's in Dover.
Staff said they were rushed off their feet trying to prepare the huge order for morning and evening meals for those at the Tug Haven Border Force camp.
The extortionate takeaway bill was to feed 1,185 people who illegally reached the UK on Thursday.
Officials put in a huge order today for meals to feed the migrants from four Aspendos Turkish restaurants dotted across Kent.
They asked for 270 meals this morning and 270 more in the evening from the Dover branch, while also placing requests at stores in Deal, Folkestone and Ashford.
Migrants will be fed chicken shish kebabs, which are served as 'marinated cubes of chicken grilled on charcoal grill' and cost £14.50 each.
Meanwhile pictures show a huge mess left at the camp after migrants were given hundreds of Domino's pizzas from the Dover branch.
Stacks of empty boxes were shoved in bin bags and left along with other rubbish by the holding area, with one Mighty Meaty - which cost up to £17.99 - strewn all across the ground with the garlic dip still sealed.
A note on one of the orders said: 'This was an urgent need to feed a large number of migrants that had been on the Tug Haven compound in Dover for over 12 hours, and were likely to stay over 24 hours due to issues blocking their movement with resources and the Irc [immigration removal centre] estate.'
Another added: 'Purchased by Clandestine Operational Response Team (Cort) for use at Tug Haven where we have migrants arriving on small boats.
'Due to the high number of migrants arriving and the length of time they had not eaten, it was agreed to purchase 200 pizzas.'
A lorry driver who works in the area said that when he drove through last night it sounded like the migrants were having a party - laughing and eating pizza.
A Home Office spokesperson said: 'We are committed to delivering the best value for money for the British taxpayer.
'We ensure all spending is carefully scrutinised to make sure that every pound of taxpayers' money is spent in the most effective way.'
