A Government spokesman said Spain is still acting "unlawfully" at the border with Gibraltar by imposing "disproportionate" checks:
We remain confident that the Spanish government has acted – and continues to act – unlawfully, through introducing disproportionate and politically motivated checks at the Gibraltar-Spain border.
The fact that the Commission has not found evidence that EU law has been infringed is not the same as concluding that Spain has not acted unlawfully.
The border operated significantly more smoothly than normal during the Commission visit.
