# file import from website failed (Http status code 403 returned) [closed]

I failed import an xls file from website in Mathematica but got no problem to download it directly using chrome. Can anyone help me solve the problem? Thanks. The detailed situation is listed as the following:

In[12]:= Import["https://files.datapress.com/london/dataset/cis-commissioned-2011-census-tables/2015-11-16T13:32:06/CT0060 - Passports held (detailed).xls"]

During evaluation of In[12]:= FetchURL::httperr: The request to URL https://files.datapress.com/london/dataset/cis-commissioned-2011-census-tables/2015-11-16T13:32:06/CT0060 - Passports held (detailed).xls was not successful. The server returned the HTTP status code 403 ("Forbidden").
