- so WHERE are they?
MORE than 10,000 asylum seekers are missing in Britain, according to the UK’s top ranking immigration official.
And three times as many failed asylum seekers are still here more than two years after all appeals against their removal were exhausted.
Critics of the UK’s soft-touch immigration system said the figures exposed a culture of complacency from those in charge of security.
The figures come after five Iranians were caught entering Britain illegally, arrested and told to “report in regularly”.
