Outrage after Spanish ‘Game of Thrones’ set turned into plastic dumping ground

A set from hit TV series "Game of Thrones" in northern Spain has been transformed into a plastic dump, sparking outrage among the public.

Footage filmed by surfer Oier Bartolome shows tonnes of plastic and rubbish lashing the coast of Zumaia in the Basque Country, a natural protected zone for its geologic singularity.

''Today I remembered the images of divers in India diving into a sea of plastic. Look, that is not coral, that is plastic,'' says Oier in the video.

The video, filmed on October 21, has prompted a public debate about the lack of environmental awareness and the ineffectiveness of the responsible institutions.
