Anti-fascist protesters clashed violently with police in the north-eastern Spanish city of Girona on Thursday.

Protesters were reportedly trying to gain access to the October 1 Square in order to disrupt a rally being held there by the far-right nationalist Vox party, but were blocked from doing so by police charging with batons.

According to local sources, several protesters and six police officers were injured in the fray.

Vox entered a regional parliament for the first time on Monday, after they won 12 seats in the elections held in Andalusia.
