Police chief rails against influx of 'criminal immigrants'
A police chief has said that her force is struggling to cope with the feuds and criminal behaviour that is imported into the UK by immigrants.

Liam Byrne, Home Office Minister, welcomed Ms Spence’s outburst: “It’s because we want to hear voices like Julie Spence’s that I set up the Migration Impacts Forum, so public services can help shape our tough points system which is introduced in around 150 days time.”
