Sacked Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont has called for "democratic opposition" to direct rule from Madrid by Spain's government.

He condemned the suspension of Catalonia's autonomy and promised to continue to "work to build a free country".

He made the call in a TV address broadcast from an undisclosed location.

The Spanish government has stripped Catalonia of its autonomy and taken charge of its government.

The measures came early today after the Catalan parliament voted to declare independence the previous day.

Earlier, Spain's interior ministry took charge of Catalonia's police after firing senior Catalan police officials.
