According to recent statistics, there has been a 30 percent rise in net migration in the year to September; with the economic situation within Southern Europe being cited as the reason behind the increase.
The figures, published by the Office of National Statistics, has revealed that in the year to September 532,000 people migrated to Britain; with over 218,000 being students; 60,000 were from the European Union, and roughly 25,000 from the rest of the world, including South European countries including Spain, Portugal, Greece and Poland.
It has also been suggested within the latest figures that European Union immigration is currently at its highest level since 1964.
