Hundreds of trains have been cancelled in Spain amid a one day strike by rail workers protesting against privatisation plans.

The government wants to sell off half the country's rail sector in a drive to slash the public deficit.

The workers also oppose minimum service levels being imposed during the industrial action – higher than before and not only on passenger trains.
