Worldwide concern grows over ‘too many immigrants’

Worldwide concern is growing over immigration levels which are higher than any time since the Second World War – but the British are less worried than they were five years ago, according to a survey.

Almost half of the British questioned in the Ipsos poll felt there were too many immigrants in the country – but this level was down from 71 per cent five years ago.

In France and Belgium, which have recently suffered deadly jihadist attacks, at least six out of 10 people believe immigration has had a ‘negative impact’, said the polling institute.
