Spain 'manufactured' Gibraltar dispute, says chief minister

Gibraltar's chief minister has said the growing row between the UK and Spain is a "manufactured dispute".

The row over extra border checks began after Gibraltar created an artificial reef, which Spain says will disrupt fishing.

But Fabian Picardo said it would never be removed.

Speaking to Tom Burridge, he said "hell will freeze over before the government of Gibraltar removes any of those blocks".
