PUBLISHED: 16:47 17 December 2012

Bromley is one of the top two least diverse boroughs in London, according to the 2011 Census results released last week.

A huge 77.4 per cent of residents consider themselves White British, with the borough housing among the lowest percentage of Indian, Pakistani and Arab residents in outer London.

The largest of Bromley’s ethnic communities are African, who make up just 3.2 per cent of the borough population - just under 10,000 people.

Bromley also has London’s third largest number of residents born in England at 83.1 per cent, trailing behind Havering and neighbours Bexley.

Elsewhere, the borough has the fourth most London residents either married or in civil partnerships, but also the fourth most cases of divorce.
