That headline should be replaced with ..... Traditional population of our Country is highest in Redcar and Cleveland ... so it has a positive spin but the journalists have chosen to put a left wing negative spin on it at this newspaper which seems odd. I hate newspapers that pander to multi culturalism believing it to be the ideal society. It isnt and the history books prove this.
