The number of immigrants arriving in Britain has dropped "significantly", according to figures released today.
Net migration has fallen by a third with 163,000 coming to the UK in the year to June 2012, down from 247,000 in the previous year, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) said.
The decline was driven by a drop in the number of immigrants coming to Britain, which fell from 589,000 to 515,000, while the number of migrants leaving the country rose from 342,000 to 352,000.
