UK net migration has fallen to 244,000, a reduction of 29,000 in the year to September

These are the second batch of figures from the Office for National Statistics since the UK voted to leave the EU in 2016.

Despite the fall in numbers arriving, the government is still short of its target to reduce net migration to below 100,000.

Net migration is the difference between those coming to the UK for more than a year, and the number of people leaving for a year or more.

In the 12 months to September, 578,000 people arrived in the UK and 334,000 emigrated.
