Financial problems have led Spanish regional government of Valencia to shut down its public TV and radio service RTVV (Radio Television Valenciana) on November 29th 2013.

RTVV had tried to fire 1,000 of its 1,700 workers to keep the broadcaster running, but a court ruled that plan was not lawful, prompting the regional government to announce the station’s closure. 

Liquidators escorted by police evicted RTVV staff from the building.
