Liberal Democrat leader Vince Cable has said that Boris Johnson should call in the Spanish ambassador and tell him that the police response to the Catalan independence referendum is unacceptable. Reports suggest 337 people have been injured by the police.
Vince Cable said:
"Police in a democracy should never drag people violently out of polling stations, whatever the arguments for or against holding a referendum. The police response looks to have been brutal and completely disproportionate.
"The Foreign Secretary should break off from conspiring against the prime minister and call in the Spanish ambassador to tell him that this is completely unacceptable."
