EU Steps into Gibraltar Dispute - 25 Aug 2013
Recent and archive images relating to the ongoing dispute between England and Spain over Gibraltar.

A team of European Union inspectors was in Gibraltar on Wednesday to investigate a border dispute that has strained relations between Britain and Spain.

In a row which began over fishing waters, Britain and Gibraltar complained to the EU that Spain was applying overly zealous border controls, causing long lines for workers and tourists entering and leaving the British territory, a rocky outcrop near the tip of southern Spain.

The six inspectors from the European Commission's customs union, justice services and anti-fraud office were interviewing people and observing customs and immigration procedures at the border, the commission, the EU's executive arm, said.

Manuel Marquez, 55, a delegate of the Association of Spanish workers in Gibraltar (ASCTEG), holds a sign to show drivers waiting in line to enter the British territory of Gibraltar at its border with Spain, in front of the Rock (rear), a monolithic limestone promontory, in La Linea de la Concepcion, southern Spain September 1, 2013. Spain wants to resume bilateral talks with Britain as soon as possible over the sovereignty of Gibraltar, Spanish Foreign Minister Jose Manuel Garcia-Margallo wrote in the Wall Street Journal late last month. A diplomatic war of words over the British Mediterranean enclave began in July when it built an artificial reef in disputed waters using concrete blocks, which Spain says restricts access for its fishermen. Spain lays claim to the territory, with a population of just 30,000, which it ceded to Britain by treaty 300 years ago. Spain has recently tightened border controls and threatened to take further action, including a 50 euro ($67) border levy. The sign reads, "For one worthy border of Europe".

For just over an hour some 30 fishing boats circled where 70 3-tonne concrete blocks were dropped in July to form the reef that Spain said was not legal and prompted the government to ramp up border checks with the British overseas territory. The Spanish fishermen claimed Gibraltar's authorities were blocking their access to the waters in the latest focus of tensions between Spain and Britain.

Its name derives from two Greek words, mone and emvassi, meaning "single entrance". The Byzantine fortress town of Monemvasia has been referred to variously throughout the ages as the 'Gibraltar of the East', or the 'Castle above the Clouds'.
