Farage: 'Immigrants to claim benefits after five years'

Prime Minister David Cameron has been setting out his plans to make it harder for immigrants to get access to health and housing benefits.

Groups who work with immigrants say there is a danger of scaring away hard-working people, who want to come to Britain.

Leader of the UK Independence Party, Nigel Farage, told the BBC he did not believe anyone should be able to claim benefits in the UK until they had been in the country for five years.
