Huppert: The Liberal Democrats have always made clear these vans will not return and this report is the final nail in their coffin.

Commenting on today's Government report on the impact of the Home Office's 'go home' immigration vans, Liberal Democrat Home Affairs spokesperson Julian Huppert said:

"This report just goes to show what a horrible failure these vans were. It is important to give people information about returning to their country of origin, but it must be done in the right way.

"Over 1,000 people complained about these vans and we always said they were distasteful and inappropriate. The Advertising Standards Agency ruled they made false claims and communities were unnecessarily demonised.

"The Liberal Democrats have always made clear these vans will not return and this report is the final nail in their coffin."
