Gordon Brown was in Ealing yesterday - amid predictions that the UK's population is set to reach 70 million - to announce changes to immigration policy.

The Prime Minister told a conference of Labour supporters that the number of professions which can recruit from outside Europe would be reduced.

He said said net migration was already being cut and that these changes would ensure this continues while maintaining "flexibility". He also promised to make it harder for illegal workers to enter the UK by obtaining student visas.

The Conservatives dismissed Mr Brown's proposals as "hollow".
