Hoping not to have to invent a wheel which has already been constructed, can 
anyone out there tell me a source for a reasonably up-to-date demographic 
breakdown of the numbers of Disabled People in England.  I am looking for 
English figures (as opposed to GB or UK).  I also need some demographic 
details in terms of age and ethnicity.  I can't find anything particularly 
helpful , even of a medical model nature.  I have tried the Office for 
National Statistics Website

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Best wishes,
