Heat is on PM at EU migrant crisis summit.

Byline: JACK BLANCHARD

Political Correspondent DAVID Cameron heads to Brussels today for an emergency EU summit under mounting pressure to end the Med migrant crisis.

Italy has warned 30,000 migrants could drown this year if search and rescue missions are not resumed.

At least 1,300 have died during the last two weeks.

The Coalition backed other EU leaders' refusal to run proper rescue missions last year, claiming they encouraged migration.

But speaking on ITV's This Morning, Mr Cameron admitted that ending search and rescue missions "hasn't worked". He said: "We need to make sure we do more to save lives."

Yesterday an Italian naval ship brought 446 migrants, including scores of women and young children, into the Sicilian port of Augusta.
