Thousands of Spanish coal-miners are expected at a mass demonstration in Madrid tomorrow, some of them having walked hundreds of kilometres in a protest lasting nearly three weeks. In some places there have been violent clashes with police as miners protested against deep cuts in state subsidies to the coal industry as the government scales back public spending as part of its austerity plan to reduce its deficit. Our correspondent Tom Burridge joined some of the miners on the final part of their journey. #BBC #Eurocrisis #Miners #Protest #Spain
