The Royal Navy challenges all incursions. We make formal diplomatic protests to the Spanish authorities following every incursion. Incursions are a violation of sovereignty, not a threat to it. They do not weaken or undermine the legal basis in international law for British sovereignty over Gibraltar, including British Gibraltar Territorial Waters.
