The British Government should increase the Royal Navy's presence in Gibraltar in response to Spanish incursions into its territorial waters, Chief Minister Fabian Picardo has said.
Mr Picardo said the latest alleged incursion - a Spanish research vessel ignoring requests to leave the territory's waters for 20 hours - was a "security issue that Spain needs to be aware of".
He told BBC Radio 4's Today programme that he was "in favour of anything that has a positive deterrent effect" but that "diplomatic aspects must be equally important".
