Firefighters in north east Spain are battling to save an area of natural interest from wildfires which have already destroyed around 400 hectares.

A lightening strike is thought to have sparked the blaze near Tarragona in the north east of the county.

Due to the rough terrain the flames are being doused from the air by specialised aircraft.
