This morning the San Fermin procession took place. A short while before the procession came to an end, just after midday, there were some moments of tension when a group of people gathered at the corner of Curia Street began to jeer and heckle the Municipal authorities. The narrow passage left by the crowd to allow the procession to pass caused some moments of tension between the municipal police who were protecting the procession and its members. After some short moments of pushing and shoving, the procession was able to continue its way to the cathedral, amid a mixture of shouting and applauding from among the public. No further incidents took place.
