A taxi strike in Madrid has entered its third day just as one of the world’s biggest tourism fairs opened, with hundreds of drivers protesting at the convention centre.
The taxi drivers blocked the road in front of the centre where the Fitur fair kicked off, setting fire to tyres and a dustbin.
Taxistas are also striking in Barcelona amid increasing tensions with ride-hailing services which they accuse of taking away their business.
Emergency services in Madrid say a taxi driver in his thirties, who was seriously injured yesterday after jumping onto the bonnet of a vehicle during a protest remains “in very serious condition”.
