A spokeswoman for the Romanian foreign ministry has dismissed claims that the UK could see an "invasion" of migrants and said that some media reports have bordered on racism.
Brandusa Predescu told the BBC: "There isn't going to be an invasion of Romanians ... Not all Romanians, young and old, are going to get on a plane.
"The UK will [not be] and is not the preferred destination of Romanians," she added.
