The population of the UK was estimated at 60,441,457 in 2005. Since the Norman Conquest there have been no invasions but there have been many smaller groups of new arrivals. Some, such as the Huguenots (French Protestants) or the Indian-Ugandans have been fleeing persecution. Others, such as the arrivals from the Caribbean and from the Indian subcontinent have been seeking work. The UK population is now strongly multiracial.
