MAP shows Saffas dominate London inner city


Cape Town - A colourful map showing the different nationalities present in the city of London reveals how vast swathes of the UK capital are dominated by nationalities other than Brits.

This in a city where one in three people are outlandish, holding passports that are not from the United Kingdom. 

It's no secret that South African expats make up a big chunk of these passports.

According to a map compiled by Daily Mail, South Africans expats dominate Wandsworth, where 28.1% of the population are South African-born.



Statistics show a trend of people of particular nationalities moving to boroughs already well-populated by people of the same nationality.

Using figures from the Mayor of London’s Data Store, Daily Mail's map shows the largest foreign born populations by borough.

As seen in the map, people from India are the dominant nationality in ten areas, while people from Bangladesh, Nigeria, Poland and Turkey each had the highest numbers in at least three areas.

The highest proportion of foreign-born Londoners are found in Brent and Haringey at 53.3%, followed by Kensington and Chelsea with 51.8% and Westminster with 50.9%.

The publication predicts that the rise of non-British born Londoners will bring the capital’s total population to more than 10 million in 2031 and to 11 million by 2041.
