Nick Clegg backs 'eminently sensible' EU benefit changes

It is "sensible" to consider further curbs to the benefits EU migrants can claim, the deputy prime minister says.

It comes after Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith said he was talking to other EU governments about trying to restrict access to welfare.

Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live's John Pienaar, Nick Clegg said it was right to insist migrants "jump through hoops" before claiming benefits.
