HMS Westminster has arrived in Gibraltar as tensions between the UK and Spain over the British territory continue.

HMS Westminster has arrived in Gibraltar as tensions between the UK and Spain over the British territory have continued.

The ship, part of a Royal Navy flotilla en route to the Gulf, was a long-planned deployment and not a reaction to recent events.

A row over disputed waters off Gibraltar, and the building of an artificial reef there, has seen a Spanish fisherman protest and increased border checks by Spanish officials.

Tom Burridge reports.
