According to the Daily Star, figures for 2011 show 224,943 new babies had either one or both parents born outside the UK, 31 percent of the total.

The biggest number was in London, with 64.9 percent of babies having at least one parent born abroad.

The figures showed that 131,288 births in 2011 involved two non-British parents, which is 18.1 percent of all births.

It is also believed that the numbers will rise in 2014 as Bulgarians and Romanians flock to Britain.
