Spain is to start suspending Catalonian autonomy on Saturday after its leader threatened to declare independence.

The PM's office said Ministers would meet to activate Article 155 of the constitution, allowing it to take over running of the region.

Catalonia's leader said earlier the region's Parliament would vote on independence, backed in a disputed referendum on 1 October, if Spain "continues repression".

Some fear the moves could spark unrest.
