James Brokenshire: Migration figures 'disappointing'

Net migration to the UK rose to 260,000 in the year to June - an increase of 78,000 on the previous year.

The figure is calculated by taking away the number of people leaving the country from the number coming in.

Net migration is now 16,000 higher than it was when the coalition government was formed in 2010.

Immigration Minister James Brokenshire told the BBC that the "disappointing" net migration figures were down to "pressures we've seen from EU migration".
