Almost one in eight people living in UK are born abroad
"The proportion of the population born overseas almost doubled in two decades to more than 11 per cent, according to data seen by The Daily Telegraph.
"It meant that just under seven million people living in Britain were immigrants - enough to fill a city the size of London.
"The rise was largely down to Labour's "open door" immigration policy, under which three million foreigners were added to the population during the party's 13 years in power.
"The figures, which were compiled by the Office for National Statistics, were disclosed amid a renewed debate on immigration."
