    Police have closed down a Spanish TV station in Valencia after the public broadcaster defied an order to cease operations.

    Regional authorities opted to stop broadcasting at RTVV after losing a court battle to axe 1000 of the 1700 staff employed there.

    Journalists working at the station are said to have given an emotional farewell to visitors on the eve of the closure.
