Gibraltar: European Commission to monitor territory dispute

6 August 2013 Last updated at 19:18 BST

The European Commission is to send a team of monitors to the border between Spain and Gibraltar as the row over the British territory continues.

The Spanish government says it may introduce a fee to cross the border, and close Spanish airspace to flights bound for Gibraltar.

The monitors are expected to arrive in September or October.

Tom Burridge reports from Gibraltar.
