MADRID - 2 October 2017: Catalonia's health department has confirmed that 465 people had been treated due to clashes with police forces as they cracked down on attempts to hold a banned referendum on Catalan independence from Spain, The Independent reported Sunday.
Most of those people sustained slight injuries but some suffered more serious injuries, the Catalan services said on Twitter.
Riot police burst into a polling station, in a town in Girona province, minutes before Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont was due to vote there.
They shattered glass panels to force open the door as voters, fists in the air, sang the Catalan anthem.
