Britain has formally protested to the Spanish authorities after police opened a diplomatic bag at the border with Gibraltar.
The Foreign Office said diplomatic bags were "inviolable" and opening one was "a serious infringement" of the Vienna Convention on diplomatic relations.
The incident occurred on Friday as the bag was taken from Gibraltar to Spain.
It comes a week after the UK protested about a Spanish incursion into Gibraltarian waters.
This nationalistic tubthumping by Spain is only being used as a distraction from the dire state of their economy.
Let's see Spain hand over Ceuta and Melilla to Morocco before they play these games.

Pah... Bloody Spain.
Theres an awful lot of men at the bottom of the English Channel, and an awful lot of ships as well, and the Spanish government would do well to recall whose men, and whose boats they were, and who put them there.
