How many people went home because of the immigration vans? The immigration minister said one, but the Home Secretary now says "some."
Home Secretary Theresa May has told MPs: "We won't be rolling out the ['go home'] vans. They were too much of a blunt instrument."
Number 10 has confirmed "there will be no further roll out" of the 'go home vans'.
A Home Office spokesperson said:
The Home Secretary has seen an interim evaluation and has not been convinced by the results. As such, there will be no further roll-out.
The full evaluation will be published shortly.
The Liberal Democrat party president Tim Farron has told ITV News Deputy Political Editor Chris Ship that the Home Office 'listened to us' over not proceeding with rolling out controversial 'go home' vans nationwide:
@chrisshipitv Good news! Thank god they listened to us!
A controversial Government trial which featured poster vans telling illegal immigrants to "go home" will not be rolled out nationwide, ITV News understands.
The scheme was being tested in London but only one immigrant took up the offer from the Home Office.
Home Secretary Theresa May is due to announce the scrapping of the plans in the Commons this afternoon.
