In all but three of the London boroughs - the City of London, Richmond Upon Thames, and Hillingdon - more than 100 languages were listed as main languages.
And Ealing now has the highest number of Polish speakers, at 6% of their population. Polish is now the second most common mother-tongue across the UK - with 546,000 speakers throughout the country.
