The Guardia Civil entered a total of 31 council buildings in the north east region of Spain in a bid to seize documents and literature about the upcoming referendum vote that is due to take place on October 1.

The operation was mainly focused on towns in the Lleida region, in western and northern Catalonia, including Oliana, Tàrrega, Alpicat and Almacelles.
