Border delays continue

Delays at the border intensified once again yesterday evening, with the queue for pedestrians crossing into Spain stretching halfway down the loop at 7pm.

Senior Spanish police officers who were in Gibraltar for the memorial service of the late Eddie Campello, editor of Vox, were among those forced to wait.

Vehicles driving into Spain had to wait up to two hours to get across.

The delays come as a result of continued industrial action by the Policia Nacional, which is locked in a dispute over pay.
