The number of Romanians and Bulgarians working

The number of Romanians and Bulgarians working in the UK has fallen by 4,000 since employment restrictions were lifted in January, but is up 29,000 compared with a year ago, figures show.

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) figures show 140,000 employed in the UK between January and March 2014.
On 1 January, Bulgarians and Romanians gained the same rights to work in the UK as other EU citizens.

Prime Minister David Cameron told MPs the reduction was "notable".

'Inflammatory rhetoric'
The government has not said how many new arrivals it expects as a result of the lifting of temporary restrictions placed on Romanian and Bulgarian migrants when they joined the European Union in 2007.

The pressure group Migration Watch has estimated the UK could expect 50,000 arrivals a year from the two countries and the UK Independence Party
