Spain relaxes law protecting coastline

New legislation allows more coastal construction that has damaged the seaside over decades.

    Decades of over-development on the Spanish coastline have blighted much of the seaside and it may now get worse thanks to changes to a law protecting it.

    The coastline, coupled with the sunny climate, has long been a draw for millions of tourists.

    But the government has changed a law that used to restrict coastal construction.
