Boston is the least integrated place in the country, according to a new survey

The Lincolnshire town, which has seen an influx of mostly Eastern European workers over recent years, was deemed the least integrated, based on figures including whether individuals held a UK passport, how many households were ethnically mixed and employment statuses.

Others had either seen similar immigration patterns in recent years or had long-established minority communities, mostly of Pakistani origin.

Spalding, Bradford, Batley, Halifax and Keighley are also in the top 10.

The most integrated were mostly prosperous suburbs or small towns around London and Birmingham, with the largest minorities being successful Indians or Europeans.
