Headlines from a poll this week suggested nearly half of British people think there are too many immigrants in the UK.

But the findings change when people are presented with the facts.

The average respondent thought 3 in 10 people in the UK are foreign-born.

When told it’s actually 1 in 10, more than twothirds thought this was either “not many” (36%) or “a lot but not too many” (31%). Just 30% thought it was “too many”.
