    Carla George

    BBC Local Live, Lincolnshire

    The chairman of the Home Affairs Select Committee says Britain is too slow at deporting foreign criminals.

    Keith Vaz told BBC Radio Lincolnshire it is a great and unnecessary expense for taxpayers and the UK should request an EU directive - to force countries like Poland to take back their citizens.

    Keith Vaz

    He said: "We need to do more with those countries that share a table with us to make sure they do their job.

    "We have to continue to bang on and press the government and keep on their backs until this figure comes down."
