Spanish train workers have begun a nationwide strike. It comes as one of the country’s busiest holiday periods gets underway.
Workers for the state train company Renfe and rail infrastructure firm Adif are protesting against staff shortages and company plans to privatise certain operations.
Around 500 scheduled trains will be cancelled during the two-day stoppage, which is set to end at on Friday night (1 August).
Government-imposed minimum services on some routes means the strike is not likely to cause chaos.
