Austerity measures anger Spanish miners

Eurozone finance ministers have agreed to lend Spain 30bn euros (£24bn; $37bn) this month to help its troubled banks.

It will be the first instalment of a bailout of up to 100bn euros, which was agreed in June.

That might bring some relief for the Spanish people, already struggling under austerity measures.

But there is a group of miners who are far from happy about government cutbacks.

They are walking hundreds of kilometres to Madrid to protest at cuts to subsidies in their industry.

The BBC's Tom Burridge joined the miners on part of their long journey.
