Migration numbers to UK show big increase

27 February 2014 Last updated at 19:46 GMT

Net UK migration increased to 212,000 in the year to September 2013, pushing it further away from the Conservatives' target of less than 100,000.

The numbers rose from 154,000 people in the previous year, driven by the number coming to the UK from other EU countries.

No 10 said its target - set for 2015 - had not changed.
