Spanish top court overturns Catalan bullfighting ban

Spain's constitutional court has overturned a ban on bullfighting in Catalonia, declaring it unconstitutional.
The court said bullfighting was part of Spanish heritage and therefore any decision on banning it could only be taken by central government.

Bullfighting was banned in Catalonia in 2010 on the grounds that it was incompatible with Catalan tradition.

Analysts say similar laws in other regions could now also be reversed.

Catalonia became the second Spanish region after the Canary Islands to ban the tradition. 

Bans are also in force in the Balearic Islands and several Spanish municipalities.
