UK migrants to get fewer social services

Tough new bill cuts access to services like healthcare for those unable to prove they have a right to be in the country.

    Britain's government says it is making good on a promise to reduce migrant numbers.

    It has introduced a tough immigration bill, which cuts access to services like healthcare for people who cannot prove they have a right to be in the country.

    Critics say it may put some migrants' lives at risk.
