Barcelona has voted to ban bullfighting, after a big campaign by animal rights groups.
Nearly 250,000 people signed a petition calling for abolition in Catalonia, of which Barcelona is the capital.

The regional government must now approve the ban, the first of its kind in Spain, for it to become law.

Supporters of the sport, regarded by many as a national pastime, have threatened to take to the streets in protest.
