SHOCK: Soaring immigration and rising birth rates could see UK population double

BRITAINíS population could virtually double in a lifetime because of soaring immigration and rising birth rates, experts said yesterday.
Numbers could top 110million by 2081, according to the Government Actuaryís Department.
The shock figures came as teachers and nurses warned that pressure is piling up on local services because of Labourís open door immigration policy.
And Bank of England adviser Professor David Blanchflower said the numbers flowing in from eastern Europe show no signs of stopping and have helped force down wages. He even warned that many migrant builders who first headed for Ireland will now come here to help build the Olympics.
The alarming picture is a devastating blow for ministers who have only recently admitted their policies have had a social impact as well as an economic one.
It comes less than two weeks after figures showed migrants are arriving in the UK
