Migrants keep crossing Strait of Gibraltar despite bad weather

30 years ago, a migrant’s body washed up on the coasts of Andalusia in southern Spain for the first time. Now, its popular beaches are regularly the scene of death and drama. So far this year, close to 53,000 migrants have crossed the Mediterranean to Spain, with nearly 700 losing their lives. And that figure continues to rise as the arrival of seasonal bad weather fail to deter those desperate to reach Europe.
