LEICESTER will be the first city in the UKto have a majority of its residents from ethnic-minority communities. Paul Winstone, Leicester's race relations policy officer, said that already half of its children over five are from non-white ethnic minorities. "We expect to pass that threshold in the generalpopulation by the 2011 census."
