    EU team begins collecting data on Spain/Gibraltar border crossing row

    On Wednesday morning, drivers were queuing at the border for up to two hours, according to Gibraltar authorities.

    A team of European Union inspectors are visiting Gibraltar to investigate a border row that has caused diplomatic tensions between the UK and Spain. London and British Overseas Territory Gibraltar complained to the EU that Spain's over-zealous checks on border traffic were holding up workers and tourists. Spain accuses Gibraltar of not doing enough to combat cigarette smuggling.
