Canary Islands see thousands protest against too much tourism

Thousands of people are taking to the streets of Tenerife in the Canary Islands, angry at the impact mass tourism is having on the Spanish archipelago.

Residents say they are fed up with soaring costs and the sheer volume of people flooding the islands which they say is unsustainable and putting enormous pressure on resources.

Environmental groups are also sounding the alarm.
