Is the bold sentence grammatically true?! Is 'double' the verb?!
"By 2035, Wales is still going to have by far the greatest percentage of over 65s, with figures likely to reach 26 per cent. However, the biggest increases in this age group, relative to the rest of the population, are predicted to occur in Northern Ireland and Scotland. In Northern Ireland, for example, this figure will increase almost double to 23 per cent."
Can we say "...,this figure will approximately double to 23 percent" ?

No, it's not incorrect.
