The non-white British population of England and Wales has grown from 6.6 million in 2001 to 9.1 million in 2009 – nearly one in six of the population.

The figures, which give a detailed ethnic breakdown for every one of the 423 local authorities, were published on Wednesday in an "experimental" data release from the Office for National Statistics. They also show there are now almost a million mixed-race people in the two countries.

The white British population has stayed the same since 2001; there has been an increase in births, but there has also been a similar number of people migrating.

The non-white British population has grown by 4.1% a year, adding up to 37.4% growth – 2.5 million – over the whole period.

Add in the two years since then and the "mixed race" people and you've got another 2-3 million. Basically England and Wales have gone from being one tenth brown to one fifth brown in only ten years.
