Only 11 immigrants volunteered to leave Britain after seeing the Government's now-scrapped "go home" vans, an evaluation report has revealed.
The broader pilot, which also included postcards in shop windows and adverts in newspapers, led to 60 voluntary departures. A further 65 cases are currently being progressed to departure.
In addition, the report reveals the phone number used in the near £10,000 campaign, dubbed Operation Vaken, received a total of 1,561 text messages - but 1,034 were hoaxes.
Around 17 hours of Home Office staff time were required to deal with the hoax messages, the report added.
