Quarter of babies born to foreign mothers in England and Wales

More than a quarter of babies born in England and Wales in 2016 were to foreign mothers - the highest level on record, official figures show.
This figure has increased every year since 1990 to the current 28%.
Data from the Office for National Statistics also shows more women in their 40s are giving birth than women aged under 20.
This is the second year in a row this has happened - a pattern last recorded in 1947.
Fertile 40s
The fertility rate for women aged 40 and over has now trebled since 1990, to 15.9 babies born per 1,000 women in that age group.
The rate at which women in their 30s are having babies has been on the rise since the 1980s.
In contrast, among women under 20 and aged 20-24, fertility rates are now at their lowest level since 1938.
The proportion of all live births to mothers born outside the UK stood at 11.6% at the start of the 1990s.
The ONS says one of the reasons for the increase since then is that fertility levels are generally higher among foreign-born women.
The overall number of live births in England and Wales decreased slightly last year, to just under 700,000.
The average age of mothers in 2016 increased to 30.4 years, compared with 30.3 years in 2015.
Stillbirth decrease
There was a small decrease in the number of deaths - 525,048 - registered in England and Wales last year, following a large increase in 2015.
But the number of deaths among people aged 65 to 74 increased, possibly due to those born in the baby boom immediately after World War Two moving into old age.
The figures for children dying from asthma were lower than last year, though Asthma UK says the level of boys dying from the condition is the highest since 2004.
In 2016, the stillbirth rate decreased to 4.4 per 1,000 total births, the lowest rate since 1992.

Well as those here now think the express is an acceptable 'news' source then i'll just post this article here.

'Exodus of biblical proportions' Millions of migrants to arrive after EU's woeful response

ANTONIO Tajani has criticised Europe for “underestimating” the migrant crisis and warned “millions” more will come.
The President of the European Union said there will be an exodus “of biblical proportions” in the next five years that will be “impossible to stop” if Europe does not confront the problem now.

Mr Tajani’s warning came as France evacuated almost 3,000 migrants sleeping rough from a makeshift camp near Paris’ city centre.
He told Il Massagero newspaper: "Population growth, climate change, desertification, wars, famine in Somalia and Sudan. These are the factors that are forcing people to leave.

"When people lose hope, they risk crossing the Sahara and the Mediterranean because it is worse to stay at home, where they run enormous risks.

“If we don't confront this soon, we will find ourselves with millions of people on our doorstep within five years.

"Today we are trying to solve a problem of a few thousand people, but we need to have a strategy for millions of people.”

Mr Tajani claimed the only solution to the crisis is a massive investment in Africa to stop people leaving in the first place.

The number of migrants from north and central African countries such as Egypt, Libya, Sudan and Somalia has gone up 20 per cent since last year, according to the United Nations.

More than 100,000 migrants have crossed the Mediterranean to reach Europe, and nearly 2,250 have died making the journey.

And 500,000 people are believed to have ventured from Libya to Italy over the past four years.

EU interior ministers have pledged to back an urgent plan to help Italy, which has accepted 85 per cent of arrivals this year.

The European Commission has offered Italy 30million (35m) in extra funding to help deal with the situation.

But Commission deputy head Frans Timmermans has said Europe need “solidarity from all member states including the United Kingdom” to tackle the increasing flow of migrants.

He said: “I will tell you this migration issue will not go away – not today, not tomorrow, not next year, not for a decade, not for two decades.

“This is a global phenomenon that will be with us for generations.”

Mr Timmermans added: “We know that many of the people arriving in Italy, when scrutinised, do not have the right to international protection because they don’t flee from war or persecution.

“They seek a better life, which is a noble pursuit, but it does not grant them the right to stay in the European Union.”

More than 5,000 Syrian migrants were settled in the UK by the end of last year.

Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has also called on European countries to take in refugees from Italy and Greece.

  Ahh those lone 'child' refugees, remember those who were most vulnerable got in first and those seemed to be men who looked to be in their 20's. Yeah we want more of them here...not!!!

People also seem to forget that government does not have money, it raises it from taxes either to the public or companies that sell to the public, that means it always eventually costs us.
For those people who want to help then they have always been able to donate to charities that helps at source, which is the best place to do it. The more people let into Europe then the more people who will make the journey meaning more deaths on the road or in the water.

  Looks like the Selfie Queen has a soulmate in Tim Farron, his suggestion would only cost 4.3 billion !!!! I suppose U.K. homeless would just have to wait a bit longer.

"Britain should take 50,000 more Syrian refugees from camps in the region, the Liberal Democrats will say in their manifesto, as well as re-opening the scheme to resettle lone child refugees in Europe."

  Not somuch as forgot, more inline with ignored as it's not in common usage because
the cartridge has since been dropped by all manufacturers who so chambered their revolvers

it remains a bit of a one-off.

Point taken 'though.
