UK could stem EU migration if crisis worsens

Britain could restrict the immigration of Greeks and other citizens of euro zone countries affected by Europe's sovereign debt crisis in the event of "extraordinary stresses and strains", Prime Minister David Cameron said on Tuesday.

"I would be prepared to do whatever it takes to keep our country safe, to keep our banking system strong, to keep our economy robust," he added.
