Protest after Barcelona's last bull fight

Supporters for and against bull fighting have clashed after the last fight in Barcelona.

A ban is due to come into effect in the region of Cartalonia.

Those against the ban carried matadors Jose Tomas, Serafin Marin and Juan Mora out of the arena and onto the streets after the final fight. They scuffled with animal welfare and anti-bullfighting supporters who were also protesting near the Monumental arena.

Lawmakers voted for the ban last year after 180,000 people signed a petition. A sell-out crowd of 20,000 saw the last fight on Sunday.
