The daunting prospect of millions of Turks moving to Britain arose after EU leaders tabled a deal in exchange for help stemming the flood of migrants into Europe.
Turkey appeared to be on the brink of joining the EU last night, giving its 75 million citizens free access to Europe.
They are offering the huge country £2billion in cash, visa-free travel for its citizens and speeded up membership talks if it clamps down on people trafficking and migration across its borders.
The deal was expected to be signed off by political leaders at a summit in Brussels last night, European Council president Donald Tusk said.
The plan, spearheaded by German chancellor Angela Merkel, will make Muslim-dominated Turkey the EU’s 29th member state.
The deal has provoked anger and prompted fears that Europe’s doors will be left wide open to Islamic extremists.
