UK social-service curbs to affect EU migrants

Many Eastern Europeans, now allowed free movement across continent, deny relying on government benefits to survive.

    Restrictions on the free movement of workers from Bulgaria and Romania across the European Union will be lifted as of January 1, 2014.

    The British government has responded by introducing new measures restricting the rights of EU migrants to unemployment benefits.

    But Bulgarians and Romanians already living in Britain said many of them never relied on government social services to survive.

    Al Jazeera's Barnaby Phillips reports from London.
