Poles largest migration group


 Official figures have revealed that Poles account for the largest migrant group setting up home in Britain, with almost 680,000, followed by migrants from India and Ireland. The OECD said that half of all migrants from Eastern Europe to the UK were from Poland. The figures showed that the number of foreign nationals rose by more than 3% to 4.9m last year, representing 7.9% of the total population. The report added that a record 2.66m foreign nationals were working in Britain, and that more than a third of them are rated as “highly skilled”.
