Se reabre el ferry entre Algeciras y Gibraltar.

The ferry route linking Gibraltar and Algeciras reopened for business yesterday, forty years after it was forced to shut down by the closure of the border between Spain and the Rock. (Brian Reyes reports).

The new service was described as a success for cross-border relations and was launched despite recent tensions between Gibraltar, Spain and the UK over territorial waters.

“We’ve managed to repair a 40-year gap,” said Luis Felipe Fernandez de la Peña, director general for Europe and North America at the Spanish Ministry for Foreign Affairs.
