London and some British cities are facing a "Romanian crime epidemic, a factor that nobody dares to talk about", claims the UKIP leader.

Nigel Farage, who has returned from a trip to Bulgaria, was speaking about the numbers of people from the two countries who may head to the UK after visa restrictions are lifted in January 2014.

He was it was not in the UK national interest to allow in more people while Britain already had one million unemployed young people.

Mr Farage said it was a "complete unknown quantity" how many of the Roma people living in poverty and excluded from society may head to the UK.
