Nearly 300 migrants were intercepted while trying to cross the Channel to reach the UK on Tuesday.
The Home Office has confirmed that Border Force officials dealt with seven events, while French authorities intercepted one small boat that was carrying 20 people.
In total, 281 reached the UK after being intercepted crossing the Channel by British authorities.
The figure comes as the number of migrant crossings over the English Channel this year has already surpassed the total for the entirety of 2020.
Last month it was reported that at least 8,452 people made the dangerous journey across the Channel on small boats.
That figure has now been updated to more than 9,700.
Dan O’Mahoney, clandestine Channel threat commander for the Home Office, said the government is “continuing to take steps to tackle the unacceptable problem”.
The Home Office has called the crossings "dangerous" and said those without a legal right to remain in the UK would be returned home.

Home secretary Priti Patel and French interior minister Gerald Darmanin announced an agreement last month to more than double the number of police patrolling French beaches to prevent illegal migration and stop small boats departing.
Patel said British people have “had enough of illegal migration and the exploitation of migrants by criminal gangs”.
Thousands of migrants have continued to make the trip across the Channel, often packed aboard unseaworthy dinghies, putting their lives at risk on one of the world’s busiest shipping lanes.
The Detention Action charity, which acts to defend the rights of people held in UK immigration centres, said the government has now “lost all credibility in managing a safe and fair asylum system”.
On his GB News programme, Farage said he had “massive admiration” for the RNLI but he believed it was “doing the wrong thing” by rescuing migrants, and that this was leading to “division in coastal communities”.
But Mark Dowie, the chief executive of the RNLI, defended the charity's work, telling The Guardian it had a moral and legal duty to rescue migrants in danger in the sea.
The RNLI said it had been inundated with donations and messages of support since its chief executive hit out at Farage’s comments.
The charity said it received £200,000 in charitable donations last Wednesday – around 30 times its normal average of £6,000–£7,000 per day.
There was also a near four-fold increase in people viewing volunteering opportunities on the sea charity’s website during the same period.
A “small number” of others, however, contacted the RNLI to withdraw financial support following Dowie’s decision to speak out and praise volunteers’ work during the migrant crisis.
