A RUINED business owner who blew up his car in front of the PP headquarters in Madrid has been arrested and denied bail.

Daniel Pérez Berlanga, 37, who has been on the dole since May and has been unable to find any type of employment was facing losing everything when he filled his car with butane gas bottles and ignited them in the Plaza de Castilla in the capital.

Seconds before, the former businessman from Bronchales (Teruel province) had crashed the vehicle into the building.

The judge did not find him guilty of terrorism, but charged him with malicious damage and possession of explosives.

He is said to be suffering from schizophrenia and had been arrested when he was 22 for stealing a car, according to the Guardia Civil.

The accused was arrested first thing on Friday morning after his explosive protest next to the government's offices on the C/ Génova in Madrid.
