Gibraltarians fume as Spain cleared over border checks

Many residents of Gibraltar reacted angrily to the news that Spain has been cleared of wrongdoing over stringent border controls that caused long traffic queues.


@eu_commission so 7/8 hour queues are ok then? Cheers. If I had any faith in you before, I certainly don't now. #Gibraltar


The @eu_commission and @barrosoeu should be ashamed of themselves. I am praying Gibraltar leave the EU with the UK soon. #disgusted


What a farce! You told Spain you were coming, of course you do not find any issues. @eu_commission an absolute joke!


Spain did not break EU law

The EU Commission has said it has found no evidence that checks by Spanish authorities at the Gibraltar border broke European law.
