The records kept by the UK Border Agency regarding the arrest of illegal immigrants breaks down the figures by region. The data, for financial years 2009-10 and 2010-11 (up to December), are in the following table.
It is not possible to disaggregate these figures by local authority and county without incurring a disproportionate cost, as to determine this would require the manual examination of each record, to ensure their accuracy.
The figures provided are sourced from management information tools; they are not quality assured under National Statistics protocols and are subject to change.
