Theresa May on EU and immigration

Home Secretary Theresa May has told the BBC's political editor Laura Kuenssberg that leaving the EU "would not mean immigration issues will go away" and she insisted action had been taken to control immigration.

Mrs May, speaking after her first big speech of the EU referendum, campaign, hailed the changes to free movement rules made by David Cameron in his EU renegotiations.

She urged people to "look across the board" at all the issues before deciding how to vote in the referendum. Mrs May is backing the Remain camp.
