Such upsurge in the numbers of the migrant population arises from the attractiveness of the UK's domestic welfare system and good living conditions, the Telegraph reported. Black trading, diversity of employment opportunities as well as various social and healthcare benefits attract more and more people, who are ready to risk their lives in order to reach long awaited “safe haven”.

Late November, UK Prime Minister David Cameron made a public statement, saying that immigrants will have to work for four years before they get any social benefits. The measure is designed to make the country less attractive for newcomers and strengthen control over the migration process, according to the Guardian.
