Roma countdown for a mass exodus to UK

Jobless Toni Samdu, 40, lives with eight members of his family in a cold and cramped hovel with shattered windows, no electricity and an outside toilet held together by wood and ripped tarpaulin.

In a freezing room measuring barely 10ftx10ft he sleeps with his wife Mia, 38, and four young children Denisa, six, Jacob, eight, Laurentiu, 10, and Marcus, 14, plus grand parents Elena Moise, 64, and Vasile Dumitru, 63.
