The UK population grew by almost half a million last year to 64,596,800, official figures show.

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) estimates the number of people living in Britain in June 2014 was up 491,100 on the previous year.

Net migration added 259,700 to the population, while "natural growth" - births minus deaths - added 226,200.

The population increase was above average compared with rises over the last decade, the ONS said.

The ONS said the number of births in 2013 to mothers born outside the UK made up a quarter of the total babies born.

The figures also found that the number and proportion of older people in the UK continued to rise.

The median age of the population - the age at which half the population is younger and half the population is older - in mid-2014 was 40 years, the highest ever estimated.

There were 11.4 million people (17.7% of the population) aged 65 and over in mid-2014, up from 11.1 million (17.4%) in the previous year.

Yes I find as time goes on that my body gets older "its weird isn't it ?"

Mind you I imagine some population growth must also be due to Migrants and I am sure  they age - as well.
