Spain has strongly denied that it has made a request for economic aid from the European Union. That follows a newspaper report the EU is preparing to activate an aid package in case Madrid asks for it.

The Spanish economy ministry said: “This is a lie. There’s no rescue. Nothing has been asked for, nor will there be.

A European Commission spokesman also said Spain has made no request for financial aid and Brussels is not preparing for one.
