Will immigration rules affect Kent harvests?

Will Kent farmers be able to complete their harvests when EU immigration rules allow Bulgarians and Romanians full rights to work?

One farmer said the rule changes on 1 January will "create uncertainty" in his industry and fewer Bulgarians and Romanians will come to work on the UK's farms.

About three quarters of those working on his Faversham farm over the summer came from Romania and Bulgaria as part of the seasonal agricultural workers scheme.
