Good Day for Barcelona, as Inaki Urdangarin paid the city more than pounds 2,000 for 19 overdue traffic and parking tickets, fines and taxes after complaints from a group calling itself the "Anti-Corruption Commission" that city officials were overlooking his debts. Mr Urdangarin is due to marry Princess Cristina of Spain next month.
