    New figures released today show the number of overseas students overstaying their visas has turned out to be vastly exaggerated.

    Amber Rudd has responded by announcing a review into the impact of foreign students on the UK - but, frankly, that's the wrong response.

    It's time for the government to drop overseas students from official immigration figures.

    Theresa May's attempts to downplay the government's climbdown over the European Court of Justice is a desperate attempt to hold together the Conservative Party and ward off a eurosceptic rebellion.

    Amber Rudd should apologise to up to 100 EU nationals who were mistakenly sent official letters threatening them with deportation.

    The Home Office today admitted up to 100 letters have been sent in error to EU nationals living in the UK, ordering them to leave the country or face deportation.

    Writing in the Yorkshire Post, Chris Grayling said: "the success of Northern transport depends on the North itself."

    It comes after the government dropped pledges to electrify rail routes in Wales, the Midlands and the North, while supporting the £30 billion Crossrail 2 scheme for London.

    This is a betrayal of the North and all the areas across the country being neglected under this Conservative government.

    The government is trying to dodge responsibility after breaking its promises to upgrade regional rail links.

    Chris Grayling may be a South East MP but as Transport Secretary he has a responsibility to look beyond the capital.

    The rest of the country deserves better. The government needs to act now to stop the 'Northern Powerhouse' becoming a byword for failure.

    An unpublished Home Office report showed that Britons could be more at risk of terrorism and crime after Brexit, The Times reports.

    Theresa May was Home Secretary when this report was drawn up - she must now explain why she did not publish it ahead of the EU referendum. She must also explain why she has since claimed Brexit would not lead to reduced security cooperation when this Government report suggests otherwise.
