"Home Office researchers have assessed for the first time the ground-level impact of immigration on British communities...Mark Harper, the immigration minister, said: 'This report highlights the significant impact high levels of migration have had on UK communities'. More than 2.2million people from the EU and 2.4million from outside the EU live and work in Britain....half of people in England and Wales live in an area hit by high levels of migration....while most immigrants were based in London and the South East, they had the biggest impact on industrial towns with high levels of unemployment such as Rotherham and Oldham. Towns with high levels of migrant workers such as Norfolk, Lincolnshire and Lancashire were also likely experience an increased burden on local services."
Mind you, they do keep wages down
"However, most local authorities said that low-skilled migrant workers were seen as having a 'positive' effect on the local economy, particularly when they did 'hard to fill jobs'."
