Spain has said it will not back down on implementing tighter controls at its border with Gibraltar after Britain announced it is considering legal action against the nation in the escalating row.
"The controls are not a right, they are an obligation," a spokesman for the Spanish foreign minister told the Reuters news agency.
He said the Spanish government believed the controls were legal and proportionate in order to stop money laundering and smuggling.
