Migrants more likely to become entrepreneurs

The entrepreneurial activity of migrant workers is double that of UK-born individuals, according to a report.

The Centre for Entrepreneurs found that nearly 500,000 people from 155 countries had settled in Britain and launched businesses.

The think tank's chair, Luke Johnson, told BBC Radio 5 live's Wake Up to Money why he thought migrants should be "celebrated".

"We benefit from all these bright, ambitious people coming here from all over the world."
