1.Within the UK the local level of migration is varied. London has the highest population of migrants (both those born abroad and foreign nationals). Figure 5 shows the local authorities with the highest proportion of non-British nationals.
2.However, some areas of the UK with a relatively low population of migrants have experienced a significant recent increase in foreign born residents. For example, Boston in Lincolnshire has a total foreign born population of 15.4 per cent, but this population has grown by 467 per cent between 2001 and 2011.
