Theresa May laughs off Gibraltar 'war' question

The Prime Minister has laughed off questions about war over Gibraltar, and says the UK is focused on talking with the rest of the EU during Brexit.

It comes after ex-Tory leader Lord Howard had suggested the PM would defend Gibraltar in the same way as Margaret Thatcher defended the Falklands in the 1982 war.

The current row was sparked by draft Brexit negotiating guidelines published by the EU last Friday saying any decisions affecting Gibraltar would be run past Spain.
