LONDON (Reuters) - Net migration to Britain fell sharply by 106,000 to 230,000 people in the 12 months to June, with more than three-quarters of the drop due to EU citizens, official data showed on Thursday.

The changes in migration suggested Brexit is likely to be a factor in people's decision to move to or from Britain, the Office for National Statistics said.
