Most people mix mainly those from their own ethnic background, says the charity Challenge Network.

The study supports previous warnings of US-style ghettos springing up in the UK.

 

Just one in 10 people questioned said his or her closest friend was from a different ethnic background.

Craig Morley, of Challenge Network which runs a voluntary national service for 16 and 17-year-olds, said yesterday: “We need policies that actively promote integration, rather than foster segregation and ultimately lead to greater social isolation.”
