Spain budget prompts further anger

The Spanish government is preparing to unveil an austerity budget expected to contain 39bn euros worth of cuts, tax rises and reforms.

The package is an attempt to convince investors and the EU that Madrid is serious about cutting its deficit.

But in the country with the highest unemployment figures in Europe, people are angry about the prospect of further cutbacks.

Tom Burridge reports from Madrid.
