Nigel Farage calls for five-year ban on migrant benefits

UKIP leader Nigel Farage has called for immigrants to be barred from receiving any benefits until they have been resident in the UK for five years.

He also suggested they should not be eligible for tax credits.

It comes as a survey suggests 77% of Britons want to see immigration cut.

The figures are revealed in a BBC Two documentary called The Truth About Immigration, to be broadcast on Tuesday.
