Keith Vaz: 'Increase in illegal migrant attempts worrying'

Keith Vaz, chair of the Home Affairs Committee, has said that new figures on attempts to illegally enter the UK are "worrying" and said that the real problem is "when migrants enter the EU".

Migrants made about 100 attempts a day to get into the UK illegally this summer, official figures suggest.

Between April and July 2014, 11,920 so-called "clandestines" were caught trying to enter the UK illegally by the British and French authorities.
