SHAMEFUL Spain bans RAF plane from its airspace as Gibraltar tensions reach new levels

“It is shameful that Spain is treating a Nato ally in this fashion, yet all we do is to send diplomatic notes or call in the Spanish Ambassador.”

Gibraltar is likely to vote to Remain in June’s EU referendum, with one Government source admitting: “Frankly, the EU has done more to control Spain’s behaviour than the Foreign Office – though, admittedly, that’s not saying much.”

Madrid has also threatened to close its border with Gibraltar in the event of Brexit, a reminder of the siege ordered by Spanish Dictator General Franco which lasted from 1969 to 1982, long after his death.
