Rapid immigration has damaged community relations in parts ofEngland, a report by the Commons communities and local governmentcommittee says.
In three areas with high immigration – Peterborough, Burnley, andBarking and Dagenham – community cohesion is among the lowest in thecountry, the MPs say.

Ministers said action was being taken to minimize the impact of immigration.
