Nick Clegg has condemned leaked Home Office proposals to cap the number of European Union immigrants at 75,000 a year as "illegal and unworkable".

The deputy prime minister said such a move would be a "disaster for the economy" and bring "tit-for-tat" actions by other member states.

Home Secretary Theresa May refused to confirm any plans were in place.
