Romanians 'want to live in civilised country like the UK'

UKIP leader Nigel Farage has said the conditions some people are living in Romania and Bulgaria are "shocking" and many want to live in a "civilised" country like the UK instead.

Nigel Farage's comments on immigration begin at 8.30.

"If you look at Romania and Bulgaria… I've been to both of those countries and frankly I've been shocked at the conditions the Roma communities live in," he told LBC radio.

He added the government had underestimated the amount of Romanian and Bulgarian migrants who would want to come to the UK.

"What would you do? If an opportunity came up to come to a civilised country with a decent health service that will provide you with housing, give you a chance to get work, what would you do? I mean come on," he said.
