Workers from Romania and Bulgaria have led a jump in European migration to Britain, the Daily Mail reported in its online edition.

“Some 53,000 people from the two countries arrived in the year to March – nearly double the 28,000 in the previous 12 months,” according to

Nearly every four in five of these, or 42,000 said they were coming to Britain to work, confirming “the fears of analysts who said that the highly-paid British economy would attract thousands of migrants from two of the continent’s poorest countries.”

Bulgaria and Romania joined the EU in 2007 in the second wave of the bloc’s eastward enlargement. Their citizens gained the right to work in the UK from the beginning of last year.
