Gibraltar clings to colonial life

Residents of world's smallest colony happy to stick with British rule.

    The British terrritory of Gibraltar is the smallest of all the areas on the United Nations' list of colonies.

    Its residents live in just six and a half square kilometres, on an outcrop of the southern coast of Spain.

    Despite their distance from the UK and proximity to Spain, they appear happy to stick with British rule.

    As part of Al Jazeera's series on global colonies, Laurence Lee visits the famous rock.
