Nigel Farage has defended his controversial comments about Romanians, saying "any normal and fair-minded person would have a perfect right to be concerned if a group of Romanian people suddenly moved in next door".
Mr Farage said the country was "highly susceptible to organised crime", adding "it is perfectly legitimate to point this out and to discuss it in the public sphere".
In a statement on the Ukip website, he added: "This is not to say for a moment that all or even most Romanian people living in the UK are criminals.
"But it is to say that any normal and fair-minded person would have a perfect right to be concerned if a group of Romanian people suddenly moved in next door."
"So far as I can see most of those media commentators objecting to this statement are people living in million pound houses for whom the prospect of such a turn of events is not a real one."
