Police in the capital are cracking down on immigration as 37 people were screened at Marble Arch this morning.

The move was aiming to combat the 'offensive consequences' that the homeless cause, as shopkeepers, tourists and locals are thought to be harassed by them.

Two people were sent home, and 35 were handed 'cease and desist' notices.

According to quarterly statistics, 560,000 immigrants arrived in the UK in the 12 months leading up to March, and 317,000 people left.

The 'raids' have resulted in several arrests and anti-social behaviour orders being issued, and are also taking place in Camden, Croydon, Southwark, Lambeth and Islington.

As quoted in the Daily MailWestminster City Council cabinet member Cllr Nickie Aiken said: "I want to stress that the council and its partners go to great lengths to support those in genuine need and help them with a route away from rough sleeping."
