Ukip leader Nigel Farage has said new figures which reveal net migration to Britain is at a record high, show "we are living in a borderless Britain".
"The government have no power whatsoever to stop anybody coming into Britain from the European Union. We have net migration now running at ten times its historical post-war average and that's if you believe the figures", he added.
One of the first Romanian migrants to arrive in the UK, after curbs preventing them from working were lifted, has spoken about his new life.
Levels of immigration into the UK could be about to hit their highest ever point, as the latest figures are due to be released this morning.
