Pope Francis has criticised anti-lockdown protesters and those who complain about restrictive measures during the coronavirus pandemic, accusing them of being selfish.

The Pope said there has been an increase in those who have thought only of themselves and argued there must be change.

It comes as hundreds of protesters in and Spain clashed with police on Friday over new coronavirus measures to curb the spread of the virus amid a rising second wave of infections.

The pontiff said there is still hope as there are those who instead take 'responsibility towards others and look for a solution so no one is left behind'.

He argued the pandemic has brought organisational and developmental models into 'crisis' and claimed it has exposed 'many injustices, the troubling silence and social and health failures'.
