    UK: Advisers 'Told Migrants to Lie'

    Some immigration advisers are helping people fake visa applications for a new government scheme to attract highly skilled migrants, the BBC has found.

    A points system scored on criteria like salary and jobs is being introduced.

    But advisers at two law firms urged an undercover reporter to lie about her earnings to boost the points she needed to qualify. Both firms deny wrongdoing.

    The Home Office said legal action would be taken against anyone using forged documents and those who help them.

    It said the integrity of visa applications was taken very seriously.
