The effects of a week-long strike of refuse collectors in Madrid are making themselves felt.

Rubbish still litters the streets after the weekend’s nightlife which sees many young people eat and drink in the open air.

The strike is a protest at the loss of over 1,000 jobs and proposals by private contractors to cut wages by up to 40 percent.
