Sir David Attenborough has suggested it is irresponsible to have a large family in today’s overcrowded world.

The veteran natural history broadcaster warned that future generations face less happy and healthy lives as resources become increasingly stretched and natural wonders disappear.

He even appeared to voice support for China’s brutal one-child policy, saying the country had recognised it would have too many mouths to feed if it did not impose restrictions of family size.

Addressing the controversial theme of the one-child policy, he said: ‘It’s the degree to which it has been enforced which is terrible, and there’s no question it’s produced all kinds of personal tragedies. There’s no question about that.

‘On the other hand, the Chinese themselves recognise that had they not done so there would be several million more mouths in the world today than there are now.’
