A REPORT that predicted that White Britons would become a minority in Birmingham by the end of the decade also revealed that three towns and cities outside London are now minority white places.
Last month, we revealed that white people were a minority in Birmingham and there are thought to be residents from nearly 200 countries living in Brum which has been described as ‘super-diverse’ in the city council’s new cohesion strategy.
“Birmingham is soon to become a majority-minority city,” the report said.
One of the main issues is that areas, where there is a ‘high concentration’ of Muslim communities.
This is already the case for under 18s with 60 per cent coming from a non-white British background in the last poll.
In 2013, a report by The University of Manchester revealed that White Britons were a minority in Slough, Leicester and Luton.
Large numbers of Muslim and Eastern European immigrants are predicted to be behind the dark transformation of Leicester, Luton and Slough.
In Luton, white Britons comprise 45 per cent of the population, Pakistanis make up 14 per cent and Bangladeshis seven per cent.
While in Leicester, 45 per cent are white British, 28 per cent are Indian and other Asians and Africans comprise eight per cent.
The figures, based on the 2011 census, showed Slough comprises 35 per cent white British, 18 per cent Pakistanis and 16 per cent Indian.
The transformation of Luton and Leicester was shown by the study to be partly due to the expansion of the EU. In Leicester, more than 30 per cent of the 110,000 people born abroad arrived after 2004, when eight former Soviet bloc states joined the Union.
The 2011 census revealed that white Britons were outnumbered in London, accounting for 44.9 per cent of the population.
The study also found that the number of white Britons in Birmingham may fall below 50 per cent within seven years.
