Eurozone crisis: The ghost tramway haunting Spain

A 38 million euro tramway built to link a Spanish coastal town with a nearby beach resort that has been unused for the past few years is being packed up and sent to Australia.

Velez Malaga's tram system was completed six years ago, but the service was a victim of cuts when the economic crisis hit - so now the town's mayor is renting it to Sydney, Australia, to help pay for mounting debts.
