LONDON LOSES IN POPULATION SHIFT

The south west has recorded the largest net gain from internal migration over the past 10 years.

Over 300,000 more people have moved there from elsewhere in the UK than have left to live in another region, boosting the region's population by six per cent.

Research from Halifax, based on figures from the Office of National Statistics, also show that house prices in the south west shot up by over 200% since 1996.

London is the 'heaviest loser' when it comes to internal migration, with 2.4 million Britons leaving in the last decade, to be replaced by just 1.6 million from other parts of Britain.
