The official British population in Alicante Province is down to under 14,000 according to the latest government figures based on the local padrón registrations. 131,000 British residents were on council padróns three years ago, but figures have collapsed due to an apparent combination of people not renewing the document as well as those who are quitting Spain to return to the UK.
