Spanish activists begin march from Madrid to Brussels

Spanish activists have set off on a march from Madrid to Brussels in protest against the handling of the economic crisis.

The movement, known as "the Indignants", is a response to the record level of unemployment in Spain, which is currently over 20%.

Youth unemployment in the country is even higher at 44%, the highest in Europe.

The group plan to hold meetings and pick up support across the continent along the way.

Daniel Griffiths reports.
