The peninsular of Gibraltar, on Thursday, focus of a political row between the UK and Spain. The UK prime minister, David Cameron, says he has spoken with his Spanish counterpart, Mariano Rajoy, who has offered to “reduce measures” at the Gibraltar border. Tensions between the two countries have been raised on issues surrounding the sovereignty of Gibraltar. An increase in Spanish border crossing checks between the Rock and mainland Spain, leading to lengthy queues, is widely considered to be a retaliatory move for the construction of an artificial reef in British waters, which it is claimed has had a negative impact on Spanish fishing vessels in the area.
