Gibraltar police tell Spanish boat protesters to 'back off'

Spanish fishermen are staging a protest in the disputed waters off Gibraltar over an artificial reef placed there by the British territory's government.

Tom Burridge, aboard a Spanish vessel, says it is a "chaotic scene" in the disputed waters.
