London There is an increasing number of people of Indian origin entering in relationships with white partners, prompting a new study to conclude that in future some ethnic groups may well disappear.

One in 10 children in Britain now lives in a mixed-race family, which raises the prospect of a non-racist Britain, according to the study conducted at the University of Essex.

It says that mixed-race relationships are now so common that some ethnic groups - starting with African-Caribbean - will virtually disappear in future, the research states.

Half of all men in Britain who have Caribbean heritage and are in a relationship already have partners of a different race.

The same is true of one in five black African men, one in 10 Indian men and women and two out of five Chinese women, The Observer reported.
