The Daily Express splashed a front page story on Thursday revealing the shocking consequences of immigration to the UK.

Only there was one thing a little bit wrong with the assertion....

(Oh, and there was also this little bit of irony...)

Officially, the figures have indeed increased over the last few years.

In 2009 the figure was 24.7% and now stands at 27% so the headline stat of '1 in 4' has remained the same for at least the last 6 years.

Unperturbed, Daily Express readers unleashed a tirade of anti-immigrant sentiment.
