Spain says around 400 sub-Saharan migrants have attempted to climb over the multi-barbed-wire border fences separating its North African enclave of Melilla from Morocco.

This time the authorities were tipped off.

Some 150 managed to get into the area between the fences but were sent back.

The enclave along with that of Ceuta are regularly targeted by migrants who are trying to cross into Europe in search of a better life.
