Welcome to Britain - but don't eat our fish

Migrant workers arriving in Britain will be given welcome packs highlighting cultural differences, warning them not to carry knives, drink and drive or steal fish from lakes and rivers.

The move follows police warnings that migrants from Eastern Europe with "different standards" are driving while over the legal limit and taking fish such as carp, which are a delicacy in Poland.

The leaflets are part of the Government's £50million response to a damning report from the Commission on Integration and Cohesion, which said existing methods of promoting better race relations weren't working.

More than 700,000 migrants came to Britain last year, according to official figures.
