Spanish city of 140,000 people locks down again after spike in coronavirus cases.

A SPANISH city of 140,000 people is back in lockdown near Barcelona after a huge spike in coronavirus cases.

The move comes as Brit holidaymakes say they've been left hundreds of pounds out of pocket after arriving at "padlocked" Spanish hotels.

The measure affects around 140,000 people in Lleida, just under two hours drive west of the Catalan capital.

People in another seven municipalities near Lleida in the Segria region have also been told they can only venture outdoors to buy food or go to the bank or for work if it is an “essential service” and cannot be done from home.
