Commenting on the figures, Greg Hands M.P. said: “It is fascinating to see the changing nature of London and the local area. There are things we knew, like the huge reliance on the London Underground when under half of households own a car, but the pace of change is astonishing.

“About a quarter of my constituents have moved to the UK since the last census in 2001, which is a huge number. In the Royal Borough, less than half were born in the UK at all.
