There has been a remarkable global decline in the number of children women are having, say researchers.

Axar.az reports citing BBC that their report found fertility rate falls meant nearly half of countries were now facing a "baby bust" - meaning there are insufficient children to maintain their population size.

The researchers said the findings were a "huge surprise".

And there would be profound consequences for societies with "more grandparents than grandchildren".
