We first consider immersions on compact manifolds with uniform Lp-bounds on the second fundamental form and uniformly bounded volume. We show compactness in arbitrary dimension and codimension, generalizing a classical result of J. Langer. In the second part, this result is used to deduce a localized version, being more convenient for many applications, such as convergence proofs for geometric flows.
