Latest fact checks

Immigration minister Robert Jenrick claimed at times up to 20% of adult men arriving at an asylum processing centre in Dover claim to be under 18.

Where's the data?

Labour MP Karl Turner is the latest public figure to claim £37 billion was spent on the NHS ‘Track and Trace’ app.

This was the total budget for Test and Trace, with the actual spend expected to end up at around £29 billion. Around £35 million was spent on the app itself in 2020/21.
