England's migrant population 'soars by 565,000' since 2011

The migrant population in England is estimated to have increased by more than half a million in three years, research from the University of Oxford has revealed.
Around two-thirds of the 565,000 migrants thought to have come to the country between 2011 and 2014 were born in other EU countries, the study by the university's Migration Observatory said......
The greatest increase in the number of foreign-born residents has been in the capital.
Almost 200,000 more migrants were estimated to live in London last year compared to 2011."
