Protesters are back in Puerta del Sol square in the Spanish capital, Madrid, hours after being evicted by police.

Many in the square are shouting slogans in support of 18 people detained by police when they moved in to clear the square overnight on Saturday.

The square became a focal point for the movement of "indignants", which erupted in response to economic crisis and austerity policies exactly a year ago.

Tens of thousands joined marches across Spain this weekend, marking the anniversary of the movement and protesting against the fresh austerity drive of the conservative People's Party, which was voted back into office last November.
