High levels of immigration to the UK make it hard to build a cohesive society, senior Conservatives are warning.

David Cameron said without controlling immigration it was “difficult” to create a “cohesive, integrated society”.

Theresa May will use her speech at the Conservative Party conference to say the UK needs to have a limit.

Net migration into the UK currently stands at a record high.

Mr Cameron said he was “incredibly proud” the UK had built one of the “most successful multi-racial, multi-ethnic democracies anywhere in the world”.

But he said that for an “integrated, successful society you have to make sure there are enough school places and that hospitals aren’t overcrowded”.
