Parlez-vous français? More and more French people are apparently choosing the UK, and especially London, over their homeland. The French Foreign Ministry said 1.6 million people left the country last year while The French consulate in London estimated that as many as 400,000 expatriates live in the capital – equal to the population of France's sixth largest city. However, these figures only include people who had registered at French consulates abroad and the real figure is thought to be much higher.
Westminster has the highest ratio of privately rented homes in London – 41.1% – which equates to 57,000 households.
