  • Dozens of Christians were ordered to leave their meeting room after breaking the lockdown to attend worship

Dozens of evangelical Christians were told to leave their meeting room in Malaga on Wednesday after flouting the ban on public gatherings.

Surprised leaders said they had been advised by a lawyer and a police visit on Sunday that it was allowed, maintaining social distancing.

The services have now been suspended.
