The ONS this morning released their 2010 based Population projections which show that the UK population is set to hit 70 million in mid 2027.
Commenting, Sir Andrew Green, Chairman of Migration Watch UK said:
"These figures confirm that the UK's dramatic rise in population will continue unabated. The population is now set to hit 70 million in 16 years time, over two thirds of which is due to immigration.
As people return home this evening crammed into public transport and on congested roads, they could well ask where all of these people are going to fit."
