Net migration to the UK reached 504,000 in the year to June – an increase of more than 50 per cent on last year and the highest level ever, according to official figures released today.

Officials said the increase has been caused by hundreds of thousands of refugees from Afghanistan, Hong Kong and Ukraine being granted the right to live in the UK.

The numbers are well above Interior Secretary Suella Braverman’s pledge to reduce net migration to “tens of thousands.”

Rishi Sunak has said he wants to reduce overall net migration, but declined to set an “arbitrary number.”
