Big net migration fall since Brexit vote

Net migration has fallen to the lowest level for three years after a surge in the number of EU nationals leaving the UK since last June’s Brexit vote.

Net migration – the difference between those entering and leaving the country – fell 81,000 to 246,000 to March 2017, the lowest level in three years.
