BBC's Last Whites of the East End looks at life in Newham, east London
The area has had an influx of 70,000 immigrants in the past 15 years
White British families say 'Cockney' traditions are now dying out
'East Enders' say community spirit has gone forever and area is a 'slum'
Newham is UK's most culturally diverse borough according to 2011 census
Cockneys are becoming an endangered species in a London borough after 70,000 immigrants have moved in over the past 15 years, a BBC documentary has revealed.
The white population of Newham is leaving in droves, according to the Last Whites of the East End, which claims 73 per cent of the local population is now made up of ethnic minorities and Black British.
It was previously almost all white working class, with the majority dockworkers, but has now become the most multicultural place in the UK, with 147 languages spoken across the borough.
Although many of the area's new residents consider themselves 'proper East Enders', some say the differences in culture and religion are creating divides, with ethnic groups sticking together.
