Number of Polish residents in Boston jumps from 40 to 3,000 since 2001
SINCE 2001, the number of Polish residents in Boston has jumped from 40 to 3,000, according to recently released 2011 census figures.
And the total number of people born in Eastern Europe has gone from less than 1,500 to more than 8,000.
Boston now has one of the biggest Polish populations of any town in England.
But the number of immigrants has been highlighted in the town on many occasions.
Recently, Rachel Bull, a mother of two from Boston, made headlines when she challenged a Cambridge University professor about immigration during a panel discussion on a BBC TV's Question Time.
