Remain areas in West Yorkshire have higher amounts of immigration than leave areas.

Leeds was the only local authority to vote remain, despite having the highest amount of net migration of 4.6 immigrants per 1,000 residents, an amount bigger than other areas due to its overall population size.

Figures released yesterday by the Office for National Statistics show this followed the national trend, where in places where the remain vote triumphed yesterday net migration reached 200,491 in the year to June 2015, a rate of 8.1 per 1,000 residents.

This is more than double the rate of 3.4 immigrants per 1,000 residents that was experienced in the local authority areas who voted for Brexit.

The remaining four West Yorkshire areas who voted to leave the EU only received an average of four immigrants per 1,000 residents.

It suggests that the UK’s decision to leave the EU was about far more than immigration.

Only six of the 30 areas with the highest levels of immigration across the UK voted to leave the EU.

Kirklees, Wakefield and Calderdale also voted Leave with 4.3 immigrants, 3.4 and 2.6 respectively.
