Spain 'will act' if Catalan independence is declared on Tuesday

The Spanish government will act if Catalan separatist leaders declare independence on Tuesday, the deputy prime minister has said.

Soraya Saenz de Santamaria told COPE radio that "if they declare independence, there will be decisions to restore the law and democracy".

Catalan regional president Carles Puigdemont will address the Catalan parliament on Tuesday evening following the disputed referendum won by the "Yes" side.

The vote had been declared illegal in Madrid before it even took place, and violent clashes erupted with police at polling stations.

Initially it was thought separatist leaders could move to declare independence as early as Monday night, but the address has been pushed back a day.
