UK reports 40% jump in immigration

Net migration to the United Kingdom has jumped by a substantial 40 per cent to 260,000 from the previous year, despite efforts by the David Cameron government to control the number of people arriving in Britain. The figures released by Office for National Statistics for the 12 months to June 2014 showed people arriving in the UK surged by 78,000 in the past year. Immigration from the EU increased by 45,000 over the period, its highest recorded level. While non-EU migration also rose for the first time in three years to 30,000.
