‘CHOKED’: The 62-year-old died on La Concha mountain.

Brit hiker dies A BRITISH hiker who was trying to reach the top of Marbella’s La Concha mountain has been found dead, apparently choked by his own backpack straps. Local reports say the 62year-old man, who has not been named, appeared to have become lost during the three-hour trek. He is said to have alerted his family in the UK by WhatsApp to say he was lost. They contacted British police and the UK consul in Spain passed on the message to Spanish police. A search and rescue mis-

sion was launched at about 4pm on Saturday (August 10) by a unit of the Guardia Civil’s mountain rescue division with helicopter help. But by the time darkness fell they had not found the man and had to call off the search until Sunday morning. His lifeless body was found around 9am in steep terrain. Rescuers say he would appear to have fallen in steep terrain and his backpack got hooked up, leaving him hanging. Although not confirmed, they say he appeared to have

been choked by the straps. A post-mortem examination will be carried out. The search and rescue mission was complicated by the fact Guardia Civil had to carry out two other rescues in the area on Saturday. The helicopter search for the Briton had to be interrupted when three French hikers had to be airlifted off the mountain and taken to Istan where medical services were waiting to give them a check-up. One had suffered heatstroke, but no one needed hospital treatment. Once this rescue was

completed, the search for the British hiker continued. At the same time, the Guardia Civil received a third call out. Two girls had got lost in Tolox and had called for help. They were found by Coin firemen acting under the instructions of the mountain rescue team.

FINANCE WINNER: Casa Batllo was voted the best modernist building in Spain.

Modern marvel THIS art nouveau building in Barcelona has been named the winner of an architectural magazine’s poll on the best modernist building in Spain. Architectural Digest declared the Casa Batllo the winner after more than 21 per cent of those polled said it was their favourite modernist building. Cantabria’s El Capricho came second, Casa Lis in Castilla y Leon came third and the Palacio de Longoria in Madrid came fourth. Casa Batllo, sometimes called the House of Bones owing to its balcony’s

skeletal appearance, was designed by Antoni Gaudi. It was built around the outside of a pre-existing building in Barcelona’s Eixample district between 1904 and 1906. The house’s owner and its namesake Josep Battlo hired Gaudi to refurbish his family home. It was shortlisted by Barcelona City Council as one of 1906’s best buildings but was not chosen as the winner. The house’s design incorporates many features typical of art nouveau. Its balconies, windows, roof and

chimney all mimic nature with irregular curves in its masonry. Its central facade is said to be based on the surface of a lake with water lilies. It is thought to take cues from impressionist Claude Monet’s Nympheas painting. It is covered with 330 discs of pottery which were designed by Gaudi and fellow architect Josep Maria Jujol while staying in Mallorca when they were restoring Palma Cathedral. Casa Batllo is currently rented out for some of the most important events which take place in Barcelona.

Land row FUENGIROLA’S council has accused Benalmadena’s of behaving ‘irresponsibly’ after it passed a motion reviving its historic claim to around 74,500 square metres of land in El Higueron.

Prison officers ‘humiliated’ Gender violence funds STAFF at Alhaurin de la Torre have claimed they feel ‘humiliated’ and ‘trampled on’ after a series of attacks on their colleagues. Guards at the prison claimed the relative of one inmate insulted, threatened and assaulted one guard there. That came as another prisoner is said to have tried to kidnap and assault several officers while rampaging through the institution intending to cause as much damage as possible. Prison staff claimed they found the personal information of several workers in the prisoner’s possession and added he was planning to attack them. Manuel Galisteo, an officer at the prisoner who works for the Your Abandonment Can Kill Me campaign, said he and his colleagues regularly faced violence. He added their uniforms did not properly deter inmates from making attacks and said the ‘courage, heart and professionalism’ of staff was the only thing stemming the tide of violence.


MALAGA Province is set to get almost €500,000 in government funding to help tackle gender violence. The funding for the province and others was unveiled following a meeting of the Council of Ministers in Madrid last week. Malaga is set to get a share of around €20 million which is being given to provinces to help them stop attacks on women. Maria Gamez, the government’s sub-delegate in Malaga Province, said funding was being given to provincial authorities because they were closest to the citizens who need help. The funding will go towards co-ordinating efforts against gender violence, monitoring cases and protecting victims, Gamez added. The money is being divided among major Malaga Province towns. Malaga City is set to get more than €118,465, Mijas almost €30,000 and Fuengirola around €14,176. Separately, Benalmadena Council passed a motion condemning gender violence which far-right Vox councillors opposed.

Fake money scam TWO tourists have been arrested on the Magaluf Strip, Punta Ballena, for trying to pay for their drinks with fake money in a bar. The two Irish men, both 18 years old, were arrested by the Calvia Local Police for trying to pay for drinks using fake tender. The boys claim that they found the fake money on the floor in the early hours of Wednesday morning when they were heavily under the influence of alcohol and decided to try and use it. The fake notes were intended for colour copies of notes with a stamp stating they were not for legal tender and were for use in a local bar that use the bills as a type of Monopoly money. When the boys tried to pay for their drinks with the notes, a waitress alerted the manager who, in turn, called the police. Originally the police arrested the boys for alleged counterfeiting due to the amount of bills they had but after a search of their hotel room nothing was found. On Thursday morning, the boys were brought before a court and the magistrate charged them with a misdemeanour of fraud and they were released.

Huelva’s Fifth Court of Instruction remanded three suspects in custody on Friday in connection with the attack which took place days earlier in Punta Umbria. An altercation between Local Police and beach vendors during an inspection to stop the illegal sale of drinks and snacks led to the arrests. A video posted online appeared to show an argument between vendors and officers becoming violent, leading to a fight. Senior Local Police inspector Antonio Garrido was stabbed in the abdomen three times during the scuffle. One of the detainees is suspected of stabbing the officer while the other two are suspected of involvement in the incident. The wounded officer underwent treatment at the Juan Ramón Jiménez Hospital. His condition is said to be non-life threatening. The case continues.

Bullfighting protests HUNDREDS of people gathered outside the Coliseo Balear to protest against the recently approved bullfight on Friday in Palma, Mallorca. False reports have stated that only 300 people showed up to protest against the controversial event, but witnesses and protestors have taken to social media to highlight that there were many more and that the 300 was representative of only one group of protestors. A large number of the 8,000 people that decided to attend the bullfight donned Spanish flags, played the far-right song ‘cara al sol’ to the protestors and mimicked bulls whilst others held their hands up in the ‘Nazi salute.’ The conflict of opinion comes from the animalist groups who believe that bullfighting is ‘barbaric’ and the other side who believe that it is a matter of Spanish tradition and culture. John-Paul Jeffs, a resident of Palma told us “it was emotional to arrive and see all of the people protesting against the bullfight. We

I saw an elderly couple change their mind about buying a ticket for the show when they saw us and they were cheered by all of us as they walked away from the event.” Many Facebook groups have started to post pictures of the event itself, the bull after it had been killed, and the protestors with heated arguments erupting between the two opposing sides. There are also calls to boycott Coca-Cola as their banners were draped over the side of the venue as sponsors. The protestors hope that they made enough of a difference to end the bullfights and that the ‘torture is not culture’ slogan reaches enough people to change their mind about attending future bullfights.

BREXIT BRIEF Economy shrinks THE British economy shrunk by 0.2 per cent between April and June this year, raising concerns that it could slide into recession amidst ongoing Brexit uncertainty. Office of National Statistics (ONS) figures showed economic output (gross domestic product, GDP), contracted for the first time since 2012. The head of GDP at the ONS Rob Kent-Smith said manufacturing output shrinking and a weakening construction sector contributed to the contraction. “Manufacturing output fell back after a strong start to the year. The often-dominated service sector delivered virtually no growth at all,” KentSmith said. The ONS said GDP growth figures had been volatile this year because of changes to the date of Brexit. The departure deadline was repeatedly pushed back due to deadlock and defeats of the Withdrawal Agreement in Westminster. Economists expected growth to flat line in the second quarter but had not predicted growth to fall. Chancellor Sajid Javid told British media he did not expect the economy to slip into a recession. “There’s not a single leading forecaster out there that is expecting a recession. And that’s because they know that the fundamentals remain strong,” Javid said. An economy is classed as being in a recession when there are two consecutive quarters of negative growth.


On manoeuvres By Joe Gerrard PARTIES in Westminster are assessing their options as they look for ways to either push for, delay, change or stop Brexit before October. Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s government has continued to step up its planning for a no-deal. Plans are afoot to help businesses most at risk of a no-deal with a bailout fund. Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and head of no-deal planning Michael Gove has confirmed Operation Kingfisher as it is known is underway. Gove also called on Britain’s HMRC tax agency to find ways of helping small and medium businesses in the event of a no-deal. He also opened communication channels between Whitehall and business leaders to collaborate on planning for Britain potentially leaving the EU without a deal on Thursday October 31. The prime minister had to defend plans to fund the NHS by more than

€1.9 billion. Johnson said the money was ‘new’ despite the opposition Labour saying the money is already being held in reserve by health trusts. Senior opposition Labour figures including Shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott signalled the party is looking into tabling a no-confidence motion when MPs return from summer recess Wednesday September 4. “We are talking to all of the other parties in parliament and if we move

for a vote of no confidence we’ll want to do it with confidence that we can win it,” Abbott said. It comes as the Institute for Government thinktank said MPs who wanted to block a no-deal were running out of options and time. A general election, which would be triggered if a no-confidence vote is successful, would not likely be held before the Brexit deadline, the thinktank added.

REMAIN activists have pledged to boycott a new 50 pence piece which is planned to mark Britain’s departure from the EU, with one Liberal Democrat councillor saying anti-Brexiteers should not normalise a ‘rightwing coup.’

Supply fears MEDICATION shortages in Europe could get worse in a no-deal Brexit, according to health professionals and the pharmaceutical industry which said the shipping of some 45 million medicines a month from Britain to the continent could be disrupted.

Enrique Fernández, a member of the Granada Neighbourhood Police Support Group was at the pool with his wife and daughters aged one and six. He saw the detainee trying to punch the lifeguard and intervened out of fear for

the safety of his family. Thinking the incident had calmed down he was surprised to see the same man later chase the lifeguard, who took refuge in an outhouse. Again, Enrique stepped in and destroyed a block of cement that the man was threatening to throw. But then the detainee managed to grab a pair of scissors from the ticket office and went to attack the lifeguard. A group of bathers tried to stop him, with five being injured in the incident. Enrique and an off-duty Guardia Civil officer managed to disarm and arrest the man, and lead him away from the pool.

Body of missing boy found THE body of a 14-year-old boy has been found in a ravine close to the campsite of La Mola in the village of Espot (Lleida) on Friday morning. The parents of the boy reported him missing after they went on a trek through the Pantano de Torrasa without him as it is understood he did not want to go. Upon return the boy was nowhere to be seen and the emergency services were called. The search began at around 8pm last last Thursday night and continued into the night until 4am. The search resumed Friday morning with the aid of a police helicopter. After hours of searching the body of the young boy was found at the bottom of a

Beware latest WhatsApp scam LATIN American Internet security firm ESET is warning users that a WhatsApp scam has reached Spain and other European countries. Cybercriminals are using the internet messaging service to try to get hold of people’s contacts by offering them 1,000 GB of free data to celebrate WhatsApp’s anniversary. It works by sending a link via the app making the offer. Click on the link and it will ask you to respond to a survey to qualify. The final step is to share the link with at least 30 contacts via WhatsApp if you want to qualify for the free data. This of course is what they after - the phone numbers of 30 people who they can then attempt more scams on. There is no free data. It is thought the goal of the fraudsters is ‘click fraud’ where people are enticed into clicking on advertising links that ultimately bring revenues to the cybercriminals. For this to be profitable they need large numbers of people to contact. Although there does not appear to be any intention to collect other personal details or spread viruses this could change in the future. Remember, if an offer seems too good to be true, it probably is.

ACCORDING to a recent study conducted by the Centro de Estudios CESM Granada, doctors in Andalucia are paid well below t h e c o u n t r y ’s a v e r a g e hourly rate, and the lowest in Spain. T h e a v e r a g e d o c t o r ’s

hourly salary in Spain has been set at €23.66, but doctors in the Andalucian province are earning on average €18.07, much less than the nationwide average. Compare this to the Murcia region which earns

€28.33 and the Catalan province that earns €25.60, professionals in the south of Spain are reportedly angry at the gap in pay. Doctors blame the low wage figures on the increased working hours they are forced to undertake. Extra shifts in the evening and weekends are not only a ff e c t i n g t h e w o r k i n g morale of the doctors, but t h e y a r e a ff e c t i n g t h e amount they earn per hour. Andalucia is not the only province where doctors are paid well below the average wage. The most high profile area is the community of Madrid where the average hourly rate is €21.24. Vi c e n t e M a t a s , t h e a u thor of the report, is disgusted at the figures and at the conditions that the doctors have to face. “There are MIRs in the fourth and fifth years who earn more than a medical specialist in certain regions,” he explained.

Holidays in uncertainty By Joe Gerrard SPAIN’S acting prime minister and other leading politicians have headed off on their summer holidays this week while political deadlock in Madrid remains no closer to being resolved. Pedro Sanchez is understood to have arrived at the prime minister’s summer residence of Marismillas Palace in Andalucia’s Doñana National Park. He is staying with his wife Begoña Lopez and their two daughters. Sanchez’s trip comes just over a month before the Monday September 23 deadline to form a government or hold fresh elections. A deal between the acting prime minister’s left-leaning Partido Socialista (PSOE) and potential partners remains out of reach. Sanchez met with King Felipe at Mallorca’s Marivent Palace last week while the head of state was himself on holiday.

BREAK: Sanchez is on holiday amidst the impasse.

The acting prime minister told the king he would not ‘throw in the towel’ and that he would seek to form a government before resorting to a snap election. He said current mistrust between himself and leftist Podemos leader Pablo Iglesias was ‘mutual.’ The comments followed the collapse in talks between PSOE and the leftist Podemos which led to Sanchez losing two investiture votes after April’s inconclusive election.

Sanchez said he was looking for other ways to return to power but is keeping a deal with Podemos on the table. He also called on the opposition conservative Partido Popular (PP) and the centrist Ciudadanos to abstain and allow PSOE to take power which they have refused to do. One option floated by Sanchez was a Portuguese-style confidence and supply government which would see PSOE

rule alone with the backing of various leftwing parties. Podemos rejected the plan and continued to call for a full coalition, the details of which brought down earlier talks. Podemos’ Pablo Enchenique, who led his party’s negotiating team, said they were still open to a deal and called on PSOE to reach a ‘comprehensive agreement’ with them. Ana Beltran, a senior PP organisational spokesperson, said Sanchez had crossed his arms and done ‘absolutely nothing’ since April’s snap election. Junta de Andalucia Vice President Juan Marin, of Ciudadanos, called on Sanchez to ‘leave Doñana’ and get on with forming a government shortly after his arrival. PSOE ministers including Finance Minister Maria Jesus Montero and Farming Minister Luis Planas both said they were concerned that the deadlock was slowing down economic growth.

Taking power THE formation of regional governments across Spain is complete with the swearing in of Madrid’s new president yesterday (Wednesday). The conservative Partido Popular’s (PP) Isabel Diaz Ayuso was voted in after reaching a deal with the centrist Ciudadanos and the far-right Vox. Her investiture marks the end of some the most protracted talks to form a regional administration since elections on Sunday May 26. Diaz Ayuso said negotiations to form the administration had been ‘difficult.’ The new Madrid Region president also faced difficulties from opposition parties including the left-leaning Partido Socialista (PSOE) and the leftist Mas Madrid and Podemos. They unearthed a story about Diaz Ayuso’s alleged non-payment of real estate taxes on a home jointly owned with her brother, leaving her facing a scandal before even taking office. The president accused the parties of trying to ruin her investiture and ‘damage’ her honour. Diaz Ayuso’s investiture process was one of two of the most drawn-out following May’s elections. Similar wrangling took place in Navarra between leftwing parties who collectively won the most seats there, but none had enough to govern alone.

Poll tracker: • Partido Socialista (PSOE): 29.7 per cent, 128 seats • Partido Popular (PP): 21.8 per cent, 83 seats • Ciudadanos: 14.1 per cent, 52 seats • Unidos Podemos: 12.9 per cent, 33 seats • Result: PSOE largest party, no overall control

A DOG breeder is being investigated for animal cruelty after Guardia Civil on a routine inspection at a vet in Mieres (Asturias) found a mutilated dog. According to the Seprona Nature Protection Service the animal was ‘in critical condition,’ with mutilated ears and several wounds of varying severity throughout the body, was practically immobile and had an elusive attitude. He also had hypothermia and severe dehydration. The worst wound was 25 centimetres long with open stitches and he also had stitches and tears in both ears, paralysis in his right rear leg and an ulcer that had led to the loss of his right eye. The dog was not identified with a microchip and everything seems to indicate that the mutilation of the ears was the result of being cut with a

knife or scissors. Seprona officers were able to locate the alleged perpetrator, a 25-year-old dog breeder.

They think he deliberately caused the wounds to ‘modify the appearance’ of the American Bully.

POLICE officers’ trade union SUP is complaining that only 3,860 of the 5,200 bulletproof vests that the General Police Directorate (DGP) promised to buy in 2018 will be purchased. This means there are not enough vests to give to trainee officers, a situation the SUP regards as highly dangerous. It points out that earlier this summer a trainee’s life was saved in a stabbing attack by the vest she had bought for herself. The SUP says that the DGP blames the reduction of the contract on an increase in the cost per

unit of the vests once the anti-knife and antipuncture safety features requested by the union itself have been included. The lack of bulletproof vests affects police throughout Spain, but especially in Cataluña, Castilla y Leon, Castilla la Mancha, Cantabria, Extremadura and Madrid, according to the SUP. The union consider the shortage of vests a ‘contempt’ for the regulations that regulate the prevention of occupational hazards in the National Police Force.

Dramatic mountain rescue GUARDIA CIVIL mountain rescue (GREIM) called in a helicopter to rescue two French mountaineers in the Spanish Pyrenees. The two 34-year-olds were on the Salenques Tempestades ridge in the Posets Maladeta Natural Park in Benasque

(Huesca). They were 200 metres below the Margalida peak when they lost their rope. Unable to progress safely without it they called for help. The helicopter pilot had to carry out a very complicated manoeuvre, hovering his machine one and a half metres

above the ridge. His two companions then jumped out and despite strong winds reached the climbers. After securing them with ropes, they finished the rescue and the Frenchmen were evacuated to the El Vado car park, where they had parked their vehicle.


42 victims of gang rape in 2019 AT l e a s t 4 2 w o m e n h a v e b e e n v i c tims of gang rapes or sexual assaults so far this year in Spain according to ‘Geoviolencia Sexual’ pressure group. Part of, the group has since 2016 unofficially compiled from media reports statistics on multiple sexual assaults. According to Geoviolencia from the beginning of 2019 until August 2 - when the last update was carried out - 42 multiple sexual assaults have occurred. July saw the most cases with nine multiple sexual assaults, followed by March and June (seven cases each). The months with fewest cases recorded are May (three) and April (five). The latest addition to the statistics was the case of the alleged multiple rape of an 18-year-old woman in Bilbao, reportedly committed by a group of six men aged between 18 and 36 who were arrested. To t h i s w i l l n e e d t o b e a d d e d t h e Benidorm case where five young people between 18 and 19 years have been accused of sexual assault and another crime of sexual abuse on two Norwegian women.

Cataluña. The four provinces with the most cases are Barcelona (17 cases), Valencia (12), Malaga (10) and Alicante (nine). Since 2016, two out of every three multiple sexual assaults were rapes, while the remaining were other types of multiple sexual assaults. In the 134 known multiple sexual assaults, at least 471 sexual offenders have been recorded, although in some cases the exact number of alleged offenders is unknown. Of these, at least 116 were minors, or 24.6 per cent of the total. Of the 139 registered victims, one in three were minors. Spain does not have an official register or statistic that specifically counts the number of sexual assaults committed in groups - two or more persons - that have been denounced or are under investigation. The Ministry of the Interior does make annual reports on the criminal offences registered in Spain. According to this data, in 2018 there were around 13,811 crimes of a sexual nature, 18.1 per cent more than in 2017, when there were 11,692. According to the ‘Report on crimes against freedom and sexual indemnity 2017,’ the number has been steadily increasing since 2013 when 8,923 sexual crimes were recorded.

Hot July SPAIN has just had its fifth hottest July this century, with a temperature 1.2º Celsius above the average for this month, compared to the years 19812010. Between the 21st and 24th of the month a heatwave was recorded and several temperature records broken, such as the 39º Celsius reached at the Igueldo Observatory, in Donostia-San Sebastian. In Tortosa, the average maximum temperature was 35.1º Celsius, the highest value in almost a century. As far as rainfall is concerned, during July it was more abundant than normal, with storms mainly in the northern half of the country bringing intense rain and some major flooding.

A WEBSITE set up by Cataluña’s regional authority which some claim defames Spain and promotes its separatist agenda cost more than €450,000 of public money to develop. The website, www.catalo, was set up in 2014 and has been receiving ongoing updates since its launch - all at the tax payer’s expense. It was the brainchild of former Catalan Generalitat President Artur Mas to promote the Catalan region before October 2017’s independence referendum. His successor Carles Puigdemont kept the website live after the referendum to celebrate the voters’ decision to back independence. The main theme of the website is reportedly to mark Spain as a repressive state which prevents Catalans from free expression and speaking their own language. Of the €450,000 spent, €110,000 was allegedly given to the pro-independence newspaper Ara to create favourable news stories and

‘Tried to abduct’ boy A MAN aged 55 accused of trying to abduct a nine-year-old boy from a children’s playground in Vigo has been released by a court on conditional bail. He was arrested after allegedly grabbing the boy by the arm and led him away with the promise of seeing a toy truck. Luckily a parent saw something suspicious was happening and alerted the boy’s father who raced after them. The man released the boy and fled, but Local Police were able to find him nearby. He was identified by the boy’s father. A search of the man’s backpack found a knife with a 22cm blade and a laptop with external hard drive. According to the information given to the officers the detainee had been frequenting the park for a few days, sitting down to watch the children. A Vigo court has opened an investigation, but released the man having imposed a restraining order and prohibited him from communicating with the child.

DGT camouflaged vehicles BE warned: as well as using drones to catch motorists breaking driving regulations, the DGT Directorate General of Traffic is also using vans camouflaged as civil vehicles, Spanish press reported. The DGT is initially testing out the strategy in Galicia, circulating among traffic to see whether motorists are committing traffic law violations, such as using mobiles or driving wearing wireless earpieces, according to media reports. Given the number of festivities in August, this month the DGT has been particularly focused on detecting drivers who get behind the wheel after consuming alcohol or drugs.


Two bodies discovered RESIDENTS in properties overlooking the Plaza de La Libertad in San Pedro Alcantara woke to the sight of two bodies collapsed in the square. Emergency services were called and when they arrived they found that one was dead whilst the other was unconscious and appeared to be seriously ill and he was transferred to the Costa del Sol hospital. Investigating officers reported there were no apparent signs of violence which might have caused injury to the two men, both described as being in their 30s or 40s and it is suspected they must have both been suffering from a drug overdose.

The OneUp device, made by Leon-based inventor Saul Arteta, is a small and compact tube that inflates i n t o a l a rg e r i n g o n c e i t makes contact with water. The idea was born when Arteta saw an interview with two Red Cross members who told the story of attending to a shipwreck on jet skis to help the passengers on board. They spoke of their frustration over only being able to help a small number at a time due to the size and buoyancy of their jet ski. This led Arteta to think of something that could be carried in bulk and dispensed easily and quickly to a large amount of people. The creator realised that as well as helping with larger maritime rescues, it could also have personal and tourism related uses. Since the product’s cre-

IT has been revealed that Spain last year rejected 76 per cent of asylum claims. A total of 11,800 asylum applications were processed, with just 24 per cent being adjudicated as favourable. But of that 24 per cent, just 575 have actually been granted refugee status as yet.

RESCUED: The dog was close to death.

Police save dog from choking to death THE Guardia Civil who rescued a dog that was choking to death after it had been tied up with a length of string using a slip knot followed it home to find its owner. They had been called to a plot of land in the municipality of Guillena (Sevilla) by concerned neighbours who reported there was an American Staffordshire in a very poor condition. Officers arrived in the nick of time - they found the animal close to death as the string

had tightened around its neck. They cut the cord then, with the help of neighbours, cooled the dog and rehydrated it. It took 20 minutes to revive the animal, say police. Once back on his feet the pet headed for home, and officers simply followed it to find its owner. They discovered two more dogs, which appeared to not be adequately cared for. Guardia Civil are now investigating the unnamed owner for five counts of animal abuse.

Spanish Life What to do in the event of an emergency in Spain LIVING in Spain can bring with it an array of issues which may not have been encountered when living in the UK. There are lots of things to consider, and we are here to help try to make the transition and life in Spain a little easier by compiling a series of helpful facts and figures relating to a variety of topics.

HERE in Spain there is a general number for all emergencies, 112. No area code is needed and the number can be called from any phone, including mobiles without a Spanish SIM card. The responders speak a number of languages, and you can also fax or SMS 112. In addition, there are individual emergency numbers, depending on the type of assistance you need. It’s a good idea to keep a printout of them handy, in your bag or wallet, in the home and in the car. And it can’t hurt to have a few helpful Spanish medical/emergency terms written down, just in case you don’t get an English-speaking member of staff. National Police, also known as National Police Corps (Cuerpo Nacional de Policia, CNP), deals with criminal offences and public order in towns and cities, and can be contacted by calling 091 or 902 102 112. The latter was set up for non-Spanish to report burglaries, car theft or a break-in when documents and belongings are lost or stolen. Available in English from 9am to 2pm, all week long, the service is also available in French, German and Italian. Once the telephone report is made,

claimants have 48 hours to check and sign their statement at the police station of their choice. In the case of robbery, where threat or force has been used, victims should call 091 at the time, then go directly to a police station to make a report. The Guardia Civil is a military force which operates mostly in rural areas and is responsible for drug offences, fatal car accidents, robberies and murders, and can be contacted on 062. Local Police (Policia municipal) cover their local town or city area for traffic offences and control, lost property and crimes such as theft and neighbourhood disputes. You can reach them on 092. And a special helpine, 016, has been set up specifically to report instances of gender violence. For an ambulance (ambulancia) and health emergencies, call 061 or 112, and in the case of a fire call the fire brigade (cuerpo de bomberos) on 061 or 112. For problems at sea, the Maritime Rescue Service (Salvamento Seguridad Maritmo) can be contacted by calling 900 202 202, and the Red Cross (Cruz Rojo) on 902 222 292. There is also a Red Cross 24-hour helpline 900 100 333.

LOSING FAITH: The number of practising Catholics in Spain is dwindling.

Atheism growing SPAIN has been considered a Catholic stronghold, but according to statistics from the Centre of Sociological Investigation (CIS) there are now more atheists in Spain than practising Catholics. The CIS sociocultural study conducted this year found that around 23 per cent of Spanish consider themselves practising Catholics, whilst 29 per cent claim to have no religious be-

liefs. The remaining practise other religions. To further compartmentalise the data the CIS split up the non-religious group into three sections: agnostic (7.5 per cent), atheist (13.3 per cent) and indifferent (8.3 per cent). The figures also show a dramatic turn of the tide in Barcelona. More than 50 per cent of the population consider themselves Catholic, but only

around 11 per cent actually go to church and practise the religion. Some 70 per cent say they very rarely ever go to church other than on special occasions. Madrid is one of the least religious areas in Spain in proportionate terms. The percentage of Catholics has fallen to around 20 per cent and there are more atheists than agnostics by a 2 per cent margin.

This information is for guidance only, and should not be taken as legal advice. If in any doubt, seek professional help.


Traffic drones THE DGT traffic department announced at the start of the month with great fanfare that it was now deploying drones to spot driving offences, but it has now emerged none are covering the mainland. So far the only two equipped for the task of actually fining motorists are in the Canary islands - Tenerife and Gran Canaria to be precise. In addition, they do not have speed radars, so they can only impose fines for dangerous overtaking or illegal manoeuvres, the use of a mobile phone at the wheel or travelling without a seat belt. The provincial head of Traffic of Santa Cruz de Tenerife Pablo Calvo explained that the working radius of the drones in optimal conditions is about two kilometres. The camera incorporated in the drones, which cost up to €8,000, can also detect if people are driving too close together or ignores stop and give way signs.

Air travel showed one of the largest increases with 3,976,000 passengers flying during June, representing a 10 per cent increase over 2018. The study also revealed that public transport showed a slight increase over the same period last year, despite a slight reduction in the amount of rail passengers. Intercity bus services and metro services increased by an average of 2.5 per cent

and 0.3 per cent respectively, however according to figures from train operator AVE, train passengers decreased by 3.7 per cent. In total 432.6 million passengers used public transport in June, 1.1 per cent more than June last year. This also included users of special and discretionary transport such as school buses and community transport, which rose 5.4 per cent to 53.5 million users. Whilst places such as Madrid and Asturias showed large increases in the usage of public transport, areas such as Murcia, Valencia and Extremadura showed the largest decreases.

Defendant gets 51 years in jail after multiple rapes on the Costa del Sol A 32-YEAR-OLD defendant convicted of raping four women in garages and store rooms in the Teatinos area of Malaga City has been sentenced to 51 years in prison at the Provincial Court of Malaga. The assaults took place between July 2014 and September 2015. The court heard during the trial the 32-year-old raped four women in the garages of community car parks. According to a statement read out in court, the man

would use fear and violence to assault the women. On one occasion he locked one of his victims in the boot of a car for more than an hour. He would threaten them with screwdrivers and wrenches, as well as issuing death threats if they failed to comply. Included in his sentence is a penalty of four years and six months for robbery with force as he committed nearly a dozen robberies in the same car park. Police were able to trace him after he posted selfies on

social media which led officers to track down his location. The man, who has not been named, will serve his prison sentence as well as 10 years on police surveillance and has been ordered to pay damages to the victims. During the trial his lawyer said he had ‘remorse’ for what he had done and that his crimes were the result of going through a ‘bad time’ in his life. The aftermath of his attacks have left many of his victims psychologically scarred and requiring treatment.


Franco title removal plan SPAIN’S acting prime minister and his governing party are planning to strip 37 families of noble titles granted by former dictator Francisco Franco. Pedro Sanchez’s leftleaning Partido Socialista (PSOE), which remains in government in a caretaker capacity since April’s inconclusive election, filed the proposals in the Cortes at the end of last month. The proposals were submitted alongside others connected with Spain’s Historical Memory laws, legislation which requires the government to rid Spain of remaining features of Franco’s fascist regime. PSOE propose stripping the descendants of several of those who were in Franco’s inner circle of the titles they inherited from them. The party said the titles ‘exalted’ the Franco regime and Sanchez said it came as part of a ‘clean-up’ of Spain’s nobility. The Francisco Franco Foundation which promotes the former dictator ’s legacy has condemned the proposal. The Countess of Jarama, Marquis de Davila, Duke of Calvo Sotelo, Count of the Alcazar of Toledo and Duke of Franco would all lose their titles if the measures are approved. The last of those titles was created by King Juan Carlos in 1975 and was given to Carmen Franco, the only child of Spain’s former dictator.

There are about 5,000 prescription and non-prescription drugs that have adverse psychoactive or cardiovascular effects that can w o r s e n a d r i v e r ’s p e r f o rmance and give false positives on police breathalyser tests according to the Span-

ish Medicines Agency. The fine for failing a breathalyser is an on-thespot fine of up to €1,000 and six points. One DGT study posited t h a t a r o u n d 11 p e r c e n t o f all drivers in Spain use benzodiazepines in some form on a regular basis.

Whilst benzodiazepines aren’t specifically tested for in breathalysers, they can be picked up later in the urine tests that follow.

More MPs in Gibraltar WITH the next election in Gibraltar due no later than April 2020 (and likely to be earlier), a bill has been passed to increase the number of elected members of the House from 17 to 25 on a trial basis. Currently the combined Gibraltar Socialist Labour Party and the Gibraltar Liberal Party govern in coalition and hold 10 of the seats with each member of government being a minister. This increase follows a recommendation made by the Select Committee on Parliamentary Reform to the Gibraltar Parliament and has been discussed over the last 10 years as a sensible option in order to bring Gibraltar in line with similar Parliaments such as Bermuda, Guernsey, Jersey and the Isle of Man where there are more sitting MPs than ministers. This is very much in accord with the tradition embraced by the

Alternatively it may wish to see a change of leadership back to the Gibraltar Social Democrats or will seek another option now that a fourth political party Together Gibraltar, led by the Marlene Hassan-Nahon (daughter of the first Chief Minister Sir Joshua Hassan) has been formed.

Car theft gang busted

TRAGIC SCENE: Hospitalet in Barcelona.

Alleged murderer’s double life A MAN suspected of killing his ex-girlfriend in Spain had been leading a

double life, it has been revealed. On the one hand he was a

sportsman, the father of a child of a year-and-a-half, and known in his Hospitalet (Barcelona) neighbourhood as Jimmy. On the other hand, he was known as Anthony Terry - he even had a Facebook profile in that name. It was under this name that the Peruvian 22-yearold was known to police. He was an old acquaintance of theirs with a long record of thefts and a robbery. He also had a restraining order against him brought by his ex, Nicole. That ended the day she turned 21. He organised a special part y f o r h e r, t h e n t h e n e x t day, in front of their son, he allegedly beat her to death. Nicole is allegedly the 38th woman in Spain to die from domestic violence so far this year.

COOPERATION: Guardia Civil worked with French police and Europol. A GANG of car thieves was so cunning that it fitted the vehicles it stole with GPS devices so it could steal them again if police recovered them. Now Guardia Civil have arrested 40 people for the theft of 118 cars in Spain, 61 of which have been re-

covered in France with the help of French police and Europol. Police say the sale of these vehicles would have netted the gang €4.5 million in profits. An investigation started when police detected that an ITV centre in Madrid

Fatal attack

was processing an unusual number of German cars for import into Spain. Closer inspection revealed that documents had in fact been stolen in Germany and were being used to give cars stolen in Spain a new identity by falsely ‘importing’ them into the country.

A MAN has died after a fight between two men wielding glass bottles in the centre of Barcelona. The brawl is said to have broken out at a centre for the treatment of drug addiction. The victim was taken to hospital in a critical condition and later died. Police are now investigating and looking for a suspect accused of carrying out the fatal attack.

Europe-wide Forty held for 118 marihuana operation car thefts EUROPEAN authorities have joined together in what the Spanish Interior Ministry has referred to as ‘OPERACIÓN VERDE’ (Operation Green) to slow down the production of marijuana in Spain, one of Europe’s leading producers of the drug. Since the operation started, National Police in Spain have arrested 814 people for growing and selling marihuana, according to statistics from the Interior Ministry. Around 300 plantations

have been busted and 4,516 kilos of marijuana, 5,487 kilos of hashish, 1,748 kilos of cocaine and 13 kilos of heroin have been seized by the 2,000 officers investig atin g th e v ario u s d r ug rings in Spain. T h e au th o rities in and around Europe have taken part in this operation due to the rate that criminal gangs in Spain are exporting marijuana to other countries in Europe via transport companies. The Interior Ministry c la im th at th e n u mb er of

plants seized rose by 538% between 2013 and 2017. Spain is a popular place for many marijuana farmers as the plants can be grown outside or inside with adva nc e d hydroponic s tha t a re re a dily a va ila ble to buy in ma ny s pe c ia lis t stores. The law also permits each hous e hold to ha ve s ome where between four and six plants for personal use although this depends entirely on the perceived usage of the pla nt a nd polic e ma y still seize them.

Children writing wills A TOTAL of 89 Spanish children have already filed their wills, according to new data from the Health Ministry. The figures showed six in every 1,000

people in Spain, more than 296,570, have written their wills. A total of 70 of the 89 c h ild re n w ho ha ve file d w ills live in Cataluña, according to the data.

FORTY people have been arrested in connection with the theft of 118 vehicles in Spain which were then transported to France to sell them. The Guardia Civil arrested eight of the 40 detainees in France and the rest of them in Spain. Sixty-one of the 188 vehicles stolen were recovered in France. Guardia Civil sources claim the suspected criminal gang would have earned around €4,500,000 judging by the quality and quantity of the stolen vehicles. Operation Volteda-Duplare began last year when police were alerted to a stolen car in an MOT garage in Madrid that appeared to have been transported to Spain from Germany to get illegally certified. The criminal group had

Russian warship docks A TRAINING ship with the Russian navy has docked in one of Spain’s African enclaves despite criticism from NATO for allowing vessels from the country to refuel there. The Perekop Smol’nyy class vessel docked in Ceuta last week. It is the second time a Russian warship has docked in the Spanish enclave this month and the third time in a year

despite NATO condemnation. Russian ships were blocked from Spanish ports from 2016 but the docking of the cruiser Marshal Ustinov last year signalled their return. The Vasily Bikov patrol ship also docked in Ceuta in June. The Perekop was built in 1977 and began its career in the Soviet Navy.

NAMED: Spanish prisoners were among those who greeted US troops when Mauthausen-Gusen was liberated.

IN PORT: NATO has previously criticised Spain for allowing Russian ships such as the Perekop to dock in its harbours (file photo).

Spain names Nazi camp victims THE Spanish government has published the names of almost 4,430 people who died in a Nazi concentration camp in Austria during the Second World War. The Justice Ministry said the publication of the names of those who died in the Mauthausen-Gusen camp in Austria was done to comply with Spain’s Historical Memory law. The law requires the government to help with the repatriation of the Spanish victims of Nazism. Officials had to search

through data held in Spain and elsewhere to trace those who died in the camp. The list of the names, published in the Official State Gazette (BOE), gives the relatives of those who died web addresses to make applications or inquiries. They have one month to do so, government sources said. The publication comes after the government approved the creation of a day in memory of the Spanish victims of Nazism for May 5. More than 10,000 Spanish

people were deported to concentration and death camps while Spain was ruled by dictator Francisco Franco, an ally of Nazi Germany’s leader Adolf Hitler. More than 5,000 died in them. Franco stripped those deported of their Spanish citizenship, making it difficult for relatives to trace victims and survivors of the camps. Spanish prisoners were among those who welcomed US troops when they liberated Mauthausen-Gusen in May 1945.

Street selling crackdown AN awareness campaign targeting street vendors who sell counterfeit goods has been launched in Benalmadena. Councillors including Mayor Victor Navas launched the ‘Do Not Be a Pirate’ campaign last week. It is designed to inform locals and tourists about the economic damage caused by selling counterfeit items. Navas said the campaign, which is in Spanish, French and English, aimed to show that illegal selling did not generate wealth but quite the opposite. “This is a problem that affects not only Benalmadena, but all major towns and cities in the country, especially on the coast.

INFORMATION DRIVE: The campaign aims to tackle the selling of counterfeit goods.

“It is absolutely unfair competition for merchants and it would not exist if there were no buyers,” the

mayor said. The selling of counterfeit items is ‘devastating’ for the local econo-

my, Navas added. Benalmadena Council’s commerce spokesperson Javier Marin said the

campaign was not only aimed at locals but at anyone visiting the town in summer. Susana Marquez, the council’s security spokesperson, said Benalmadena’s Association of Merchants and Businesspeople had been demanding such a campaign for several years. Illegal traders tended to gather on the promenade and in the town’s port, she added. “Five advertisements will be placed along the promenade and others will be put up at bus stops,” Marquez said. The campaign is being carried out by the InnoBen council-backed company which helps the authority with public information campaigns.

Artist exhibit BENALMADENA’S Bil-Bil Castle is hosting an exhibit of paintings from award-winning Spanish artist Juan Carlos Sastre, beginning at the end of this month. Benalmadena Council said Sastre is a ‘renowned’ painter and sculptor who has won several national and international awards. His work has been exhibited in Spain, France and the US.

The exhibition of Sastre’s work is on until Friday August 30. It is open from 10am to 1pm and from 6pm to 8pm Monday to Friday.

Tourist enquiries BENALMADENA’S Tourist Office dealt with more than 6,500 tourist enquiries in July, according to the latest council data. The figures refer to those who visited the office to get information about the town and its attractions. Council data showed tourists from more than 20 countries made enquiries at the office. The largest number was made by Spanish visitors at almost 2,560, followed by the British with almost 1,810 and the French with 387. German tourists made 184 enquiries, while the Dutch made 146 and Danish visitors 140.

Drugs dens shut down GUARDIA CIVIL shut down four ‘narcoflats’ in Mijas and arrested 16 people for crimes against public health, charging two of them in addition to fraudulently connecting to the electricity supply. The operation took place between February and June. The Guardia Civil together with Mijas Local Police suspected that there were several homes from which drugs - mainly cocaine and heroin - were being sold. Police firstly targeted a flat in Las Lagunas. The officers found that the residents were selling narcotics though a window that fronted a public road. In a raid officers found 282 doses of cocaine and heroin, as well as cash. They simultaneously raided a second home in Mijas Pueblo where they seized €8,000 in cash, 19 doses and 21 grammes of cocaine. In a second day of action, two more searches were carried out in homes. One of the flats turned out to be the place where the alleged leader of the organisation stored much of the drugs before cutting, as well as money. Police found 266 grammes of cocaine and heroin in rock form with a high degree of purity in addition to more than €8,000. In the second flat police seized 38 doses of the same substances and €1,040 in cash. The 16 detainees, whose ages range from 18 to 51 years old, have been put at the disposal of the courts.

The eagle eyed police officers thought an individual they had seen in the port appeared to match a description they held. The man claimed diplomatic immunity and produced a passport from the Central African Republic which bore his name. After studying the passport, they concluded it had been tampered with and promptly arrested him not only to execute the warrant but on suspicion of falsifying an official document.

Marbella Bus success ALTHOUGH there have been a number of perceived problems with buses in Marbella, one new service seems to have been well received. It was only on August 1 that the 6B service from Bello Horizonte to La Cañada via the centre of Marbella was introduced and already it is transporting up to 1,000 passengers a day making it easier for many travellers to reduce their travel time. As an added bonus for those who had complained about the congestion on routes 2 and 6, it would appear that they are now carrying 16 per cent fewer passengers thus making the journey more comfortable for those who still take those routes during this very hot weather. The 6B runs every 30 minutes every day and starts at 7.45am at La Cañada and 8.15am at Bello Horizonte, but the council is listening to the views of passengers and may make some adjustments to the route or timetable in the future, especially during working hours.

Tornadoes rip through Amsterdam and Luxembourg DRAMATIC images of a tornado ripping through central Amsterdam on Friday have been trending on social media. The freak phenomenon whipped across the water and round buildings, bringing down trees, gathering up debris and damaging vehicles. A second tornado in southwestern Luxembourg left a number of people injured, according to media reports, as it left a scene of destruction in its wake: more than 100 homes were badly damaged, debris was strewn all over the place and power pylons were brought down. The wind also crossed into France, causing some damage to property in the Meurthe-et-Moselle region.

FREAK: The tornado brought down trees and damaged vehicles.

NATIONAL POLICE and customs officers have thwarted an attempt to get cocaine through Malaga port. Eight people have been arrested in the investigation dubbed operation ‘Aladin,’ five of them Malaga port workers. Officers also seized eight kilos of cocaine after carrying out raids in six locations.

The consignment of the drug had been a ‘symbolic’ amount to test out a plan to make Malaga an alternative route for introducing drugs into Spain to ports like Algeciras and Barcelona, according to Spanish media reports. The drugs had been taken out of a container from Puerto de Salvador in Brazil and reg-

istered at Valencia port, with Malaga as the final destination. Police said the drug trafficking organisation had been in regular contact with workers at the Costa del Sol port since the end of last year. The authorities stressed the ‘extreme security measures’ used by some of the individuals they had investigated, even

to the extent of using encryption systems to communicate. The investigation also revealed that one of the suspects grew marihuana for sale and distribution in the Cartama area. A lorry loaded with 37 kilos of marihuana which set out from this location was intercepted on the French border.

So far this year 507 specimens have been found, a figure similar to the numbers found by this stage last year, but the pest controllers aim to double that number by the end of the campaign.

FOUR Algerians being investigated for the gang rape of an 18-year-old woman in northern Spain will be deported once investigations are complete. A total of six arrests were made in Bilbao with two men being remanded in custody. The four released from custody with charges are being investigated. When their involvement in the attack is clarified they will either face court or be deported, it has been revealed. The four suspects have been found to be in the country illegally and the procedure to ex-

pel them has been started, although this will be under the control of the trial judge in the rape case. At the moment they are on conditional bail and have to report to court every day. The victim clearly recognised two of her alleged attackers - she had met one of them through social networks. These are the two remanded in custody. She could not identify the rest of the gang that raped her in a park, so the court is waiting on tests and investigations to determine if they are the ones who took part.

Health authorities say all three are now out of danger after the attack by a mastiff dog in the town of O Bolo and are expected to be discharged from hospital soon. The fourth person was not seriously hurt. The dog apparently attacked the two grown up daughters of its owners and one of their partners as well as a neighbour. Manuel Corzo, the mayor of O Bolo, has confirmed that the dog is now in the kennel of A Rua, where it will be watched for a few days, before a decision is made about its future.

THE death of US financier Jeffrey Epstein while being held in prison on charges of sex trafficking has prompted a special FBI investigation into the circumstances. Epstein died shortly after he was found unconscious in his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Centre in New York City early on Saturday, according to media reports. He had seemingly taken his own life. The millionaire was reportedly discovered to have marks on his neck last month, but there are conflicting reports as to whether he was placed on

Jeffrey Epstein death

UNCLEAR: There are conflicting reports as to whether the disgraced financier had been put on suicide watch at any time. suicide watch at some point. Conspiracy theories sur-

rounding his death have abounded on social media

ever since the news of his death broke, not least because it occurred just a day after the release of pages of court documents with fresh allegations against him and some of his high-profile connections. Epstein was arrested on July 6 on allegations he arranged a sex-trafficking ring involving under-age girls. He was denied bail, and could have faced up to 45 years behind bars if he had been convicted at his trial due to take place next year. He had pleaded not guilty to the sex trafficking and conspiracy charges.

Power cut hits large part of the UK THE UK was hit by major power failures last week, according to news reports. Power suppliers said areas of London, the South East, Midlands and South West were without electricity. There were also reports of problems in

the North East. ‘We’re aware of a power cut affecting a large area of London and the South East,’ UK Power Networks posted on Twitter early last Friday evening. ‘We believe this is due to a failure to National Grid’s network, which is af-

fecting our customers,’ the Tweet continued. Western Power said they were experiencing a ‘major incident.’ The power cut reportedly impacted on rail services, airports, London Underground and traffic lights.

Economic concerns over impasse

Losses for Mango but sales increase

Second quarter investment grew year-on-year by 1.2 per cent compared to the 4.7 per cent recorded in the first three months of this year. Investment in capital goods shrank by 1.4 per cent year-on-year in the second quarter after growing by 7.2 per cent from the first quarter of 2018 to 2019. The INE did not state that the fall was connected to the current political situation. But the data could indicate that firms are holding back capital because of political uncertainty. Capital goods investment is typically seen as a litmus test of business confidence.

FASHION chain Mango made losses of €35 million in 2018 despite sales increasing by 1.8 per cent, company figures show. Gross profits rose from €115 to €135 million, or by 17 per cent, from 2017 to 2018 according to the firm’s data. Sales totalled more than €2.2 billion last year, around €40 million more than in 2017. Costs including €57 million invested in the company’s digital arm led to net losses. CEO Toni Ruiz said the cause of the losses were ‘complex,’ but added gross profit growth was ‘excellent.’

TWO of Spain’s acting government ministers have warned ongoing political deadlock resulting from indecisive election results is harming economic growth. Acting Finance Minister Maria Jesus Montero said the failure to form a government following April’s snap election was creating uncertainty. Farming Minister Luis Planas said a stable government was needed to enact reforms in the agricultural sector and deal with potential fallout from Brexit. Montero said: “The deadlock does not favour economic growth and there are certain signs of lower growth as evidenced by some data.

By Joe Gerrard “A government running at full capacity would be much more favourable.” Planas said reforms in the farming sector needed to be enacted ‘right now.’ “A stable government is needed which is capable of reforming so that the Spanish quality of life can be improved,” Planas said. The comments of both come as recent National Institute of Statistics (INE) data showed gross domestic product (GDP) continued to grow in the second quarter but at a slower rate.


BBVA sells subsidiary THE BBVA bank has sold its Paraguayan subsidiary to Banco GNB’s division in the country for €240 million and has notified Spain’s National Stock Market Commission (CMNV) regulator that it expects a net capital gain of €20 million.

Incentive call USAGE: Hospitality firms rarely use the invoices.

Low invoice use ELECTRONIC invoices issued by hotels, restaurants and cafes represented more than 0.4 per cent of the Spanish total in 2017 and 2018, according to the Seres digital documentation company. Seres said the use of electronic invoicing was ‘very small’ in the hospitality industry given that it makes up 7.2 per cent of Spanish gross domestic product (GDP). Seres Marketing and Communication Director Alberto Redondo said: “Even though it is one of the key sectors of the Spanish economy, much remains to be done as far as the level of electronic invoicing is concerned because it is very low or almost non-existent.”

POWER company Red Electrica (REE) has called on Spain’s National Markets and Competition Commission (CNMC) to create ‘real incentives’ and guarantee legal certainty to encourage companies to invest while also addressing climate change.

French buy FRENCH firm CPC Packaging has bought the Valencia region-based Fina Flexible Packaging which the former said would ‘significantly expand’ its coverage across European markets because of Fina’s customer base in Spain and across Western Europe.

Rents higher than before crisis RENTING in Spain is now 10.6 per cent more expensive than it was before the property market crash in 2007 and subsequent recession, National Institute of Statistics (INE) data shows. INE figures for 2018 showed rents have risen beyond pre-crash levels in every region except Navarra. Rents in Cataluña, Cantabria, the Balearic Islands and Galicia rose by 15.4

per cent, 14.7 per cent, 14.6 per cent and 13 per cent respectively. INE data also showed the percentage of households living in rented homes rose by 4 per cent from 2007 to 2018. The regions with the highest proportion of households in rentals were the Canary Islands with 27.8 per cent, the Balearic Islands with 27.7, Cataluña, 24.9 and Madrid, 23.3.

New company creation falls A TOTAL of 7,623 new companies were set up in Spain from January to July this year, a year-on-year fall of 1.7 per cent according to credit firm Iberinform. Iberinform figures showed almost a quarter, 23 per cent, of new companies registered were in Madrid. One in five were set up in Cataluña while 16 per cent were registered in Andalucia. Service businesses made up more than half of the total. Construction’s share of new firms was one quarter while industrial companies made up 6 per cent of the total. Iberinform figures also showed 57,705 plans to create new firms were registered from January to July this year, 1.7 per cent less than during the first seven months of 2018. A total of 21,630 companies were wound up in the first seven months of 2019, 1 per cent higher than January to July last year. Almost a quarter of all companies that dissolved did so in Madrid. One fifth did so in Cataluña, while 11 per cent did in both Andalucia and Valencia.

Stakeholders call for coalition deal TRADE UNIONS and business organisations have both called on Spain’s largest political party to reach a deal that would enable it to govern following April’s inconclusive general election. The general secretaries of the CCOO and UGT, two of Spain’s largest trade unions, both called on the left-leaning Partido Socialista (PSOE) to unite with the leftist Podemos. Heads of the Confederation of Business Organisations (CEOE) and the Confederation of Small and Medium Enterprises (CEPYME) said acting Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez should form a ‘moderate and stable’ government. Unai Sordo and Pepe Alvarez, of the CCOO and UGT unions respectively, said it was more important at this stage for PSOE and Podemos to agree on a joint programme. Union leaders called for tax reforms and raising the minimum wage to be a part of the pact. CEOE President Antonio Garamendi said stability and moderation should be the foundation of any deal PSOE strikes with other parties. CEPYME’s head Gerado Cuerva called for the ‘world of business’ to be at the centre of a future government.

New head for developer ACTION PLEDGE: Valerio (inset) said she would crack down on the hiring of delivery riders as freelancers. CREDIT: Shutterstock (main), Wikimedia Commons (inset)

Contract crackdown SPAIN’S acting labour minister has vowed to end the practice of some workers being hired improperly on self-employed contracts if her party is returned to government. Magdalena Valerio unveiled plans for the crackdown following meetings with acting Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez, trade union leaders and the heads of business associations. The government needed to address multiple court rulings which stated workers employed under such arrangements are full time staff and should be contracted as such, the minister added. Valerio added she planned to repeal the ‘most harmful’ elements of labour reforms introduced by the previous

conservative Partido Popular (PP) government. Those reforms were followed by a rise in workers being hired under temporary or zero-hour contracts, dubbed ‘junk contracts’ by critics. The crackdown would target companies in the so-called ‘gig economy,’ such as delivery firms Deliveroo and Glovo. Both firms employ delivery riders under freelance contracts, meaning workers have to pay their own social security contributions despite not being able to set their work schedules. The companies also require workers to make a set amount of deliveries to receive more work. Valerio’s pledge to crack down on

such practices follows court rulings such as in Madrid’s 19th Social Court which ruled Deliveroo workers should be classed as full time staff. The court ordered the firm to pay out almost €1.2 million to 500 delivery riders in social security payments they were made to contribute. Deliveroo has since said it will appeal against the ruling in Spain’s Supreme Court. That ruling is expected to set the precedent on whether the company and others can employ their riders as freelancers. Workers at Glovo in Barcelona protested earlier this year against their conditions and burnt their delivery bags.

Dia owner probe A NATIONAL COURT judge has summoned the owner of Spanish supermarket Dia to testify on allegations he ‘economically strangled’ and bankrupted another company to buy it at below market prices. Judge Manuel Garcia Castellon claimed Mikhail Fridman, owner of the LetterOne private equity firm which bought the struggling Dia earlier this year, used underhand tactics to buy Zed Worldwide. His attempted takeover began in 2009. Zed Worldwide asked to be declared insolvent on June 30, 2016 and Fridman submitted a bid to buy it for €20 million four months later, well below its market value. A police anti-corruption probe alleged Fridman had ‘direct power’ over actions which they said caused property damage to Zed Worldwide shareholders. The allegations came after Fridman wrote to the Anti-Corruption Prosecutor’s Office in November 2017 in an effort to absolve himself of responsibility over the company’s insolvency. The new police report which levelled

Fridman deployed the tactics he used with the ‘total seizure’ of the company in mind, the police report alleged. His approach allegedly involved a ‘complex’ combination of actions which were designed to economically suffocate Zed Worldwide.

Prosecutor Jose Grinda, who has also been probing the case, claimed Fridman used a tactic known in the Russian criminal underworld as a ‘raider’ to try and acquire the company. Investigators also accused Fridman and others linked to him of illegally disrupting dividend payments to Zed Worldwide’s Russian subsidiaries. This left the company with a ‘total lack’ of liquidity, the report claimed.

Bring back National Service LEAPY LEE SAYS IT OTHERS THINK IT AS most of my scribble followers are aware, I don’t generally enter into personal rapport with correspondents. As much as I truly do appreciate the wonderful and varied feedback that I receive, getting involved with individual readers has, I have learned through past experience, usually been more time consuming than productive. However I do read all the mail that arrives to me personally and I’m always interested in letters received by the EWN, especially those pertaining to the column that is published on our excellent ‘Your Opinion’ letters page. This was certainly the case last week. Midst a positive deluge of mail supporting my ‘What If’ manifesto, the one that managed to find the ‘Letter of the week’ spot was, of course, a strictly minority, derogatory opinion. The gentleman disagreed with a number of my suggestions, and I did indeed take umbrage at his efforts to depict me as something of a cross between Donald Trump and Adolf Hitler. Firstly, my suggestion that we bring back National Service was not to teach our youngsters

STRICT DISCPILINE: National Service.

to kill people, they’re already learning that perfectly well in Civvy Street! It was to instill them with discipline and respect for their fellow human beings; rescue them from the gang infested streets, and give them the opportunity to learn a trade and engage in wider life experiences. The immigrant camps I suggested were not a resurgence of the likes of Auschwitz or Belsen, but places with full medical facilities, factories,

acceptable living conditions and places of learning. Somewhere to place illegals and those without papers; enabling them to live and work without disruption of local society, until they either earned the opportunity of becoming British citizens, or be returned back from whence they came. The ‘boot camps’ would be to bring young and rampant criminals into line. Strict disciplinary institutions that would

strike fear into young thugs and encourage them to attempt anything (even work!) to stay out of these establishments forever. So, to this gentleman who wrote in, I most respectfully ask you to read my blurb more carefully and not try to instill it with your own, utterly incorrect interpretations. Thanks a lot. I see yet another ‘suicide’ has prevented a high profile trial that could have incriminated members of the ‘hierarchy.’ Jeffery Epstein joins the ranks of those whose deaths are terribly opportune for yet more slimy highly placed toe rags, who, believe me, will stop at nothing to preserve their privileged existence. The tragic, still mysterious death of scientist David Kelly was another. Stephen Ward also ‘took his own life’ the night before he was prepared to blow the whistle on some of the highest in the land, which more than probably included royalty. Heaven knows how many others have been quietly ‘neutralised’ to cover the tracks of the elite. And while we are about it, have the authorities ceased to investigate the sordid goings on at Elm House? Plenty of ‘high profiles’ involved there I can tell you. Oops, careful Leapy, don’t want you ‘committing suicide’ just yet! Keep the faith. Love Leapy

I’m a journo… Never mind! But then I came across a couple of newspaper articles. Firstly, about the actor Kevin Spacey (assault allegations recently dropped against him in America) ‘punching back’ at his accusers with a defiant poetry recital alongside the statue of a battered Greek boxer in Rome’s main archaeological museum. Next, that the police chief at the centre of the botched VIP sex abuse inquiry costing £2.5m into false allegations of paedophilia and child murder by the fantasist ‘Nick’ has amassed a £2m pension pot. And that when allegations about the Westminster paedophile ring first surfaced, Tom Watson, now Labour’s deputy leader, leapt upon them purely for personal political advancement. Sadly, one fact in this sorry mess that is ‘credible and true.’ Something’s wrong with this world, isn’t it?

LEGALLY SPEAKING Are his charges too high? Four years ago I bought a property in a new complex. At the time of purchase I was told that the community charge would be €155. On completion I was informed that the charge would be €255, because my apartment has a garden. Most others have terraces. Now the community charge has been reduced to €236 per month. All properties were reduced as the new President promised. Many other residents also complain about the high charges. They tell me that my charge is higher because my garden is watered by the community system and not through my apartment. The administrator tells me that any application to reduce must be done through the courts. Can I get these charges lowered? H M (Costa del Sol) It is quite normal that a larger unit YOU AND THE with a garden pays LAW IN SPAIN more than a smaller unit with a terrace.

Teemu Laitinen, owner of the company arrived from Finland four years ago, and began working at the store. Instead of going home at the end of summer as planned, Teemu had such passion for his job he decided to stay and began to take on more and more responsibility until the shop’s previous owner eventually moved back to Finland and Teemu took over completely.

This week I was robbed! MIKE SENKER IN MY OPINION Views of a Grumpy Old Man THIS week’s article has been written by a guest; a mini grumpy in the making, a ‘grumpette’ if you will. Please welcome my daughter, Dr S : This week I was robbed. No not in the way you might think. But by Starbucks. They even asked me my name before they robbed me. Most untraditional (I work with offenders, I should know). So, Monday I bounced into Starbucks at Waterloo station in London, and asked for a Soya Latte. Did I want it to be tall, grande or venti the ‘barista’ (a whole other article) asked; this is a language reserved for Starbucks just to make the process more convoluted and challenging. Let’s be clear, I need coffee. This means engaging my brain (pre-caffeine) is a challenge, so it seems unfair to introduce new words other than small, medium or large at this point, but alas, they do. Then, the ‘barista’ tells me the price of this ‘grande’ (medium to the rest of the world), latte - with its not so special milk -

is £3.90. Hang on, let me just repeat this. THREE POUNDS, NINETY. Almost £4! Now, I drink coffee a lot. And don’t get me wrong, I am partial to a fancy pants, whirly twirly, coloured, unprounceable, instagrammable coffee like the best of us, BUT, this is not what a ‘grande’ soya latte is. It’s BASIC. So why are you charging me the same price as a taxi from where I live to my nearest train station? I’ll tell you why; because they can! Because I smiled as he said ‘that will be £3.90 please’ and paid it. Because I didn’t say a word, and instead just messaged Big Grumpy and moaned. To be clear, Starbucks isn’t the only coffee shop robbing people, but I am quite sure every time I go into this establishment the price is creeping up for no valid reason. AND, it seems I am penalised for my lactose intolerance allergy (an early gift from my Dad) by having to pay extra for soya milk. I’ll just also have a quick moan about people who don’t indicate while I am here. Yes I am a psychologist, but contrary to popular belief, I am not a mind-reader! You are a hazard on the road! Please note, both these moans are particularly relevant following my recent trip to visit Big Grumpy in Spain, since coffee is one euro at our local venta (Starbucks take note) and no-one ever indicates!

There are also many special offers and starter kits to help beginners choose the correct product, as well as many models and sizes that will fit your pocket both economically and physically, so it is worth browsing in store. To make the experience of buying liquids or accessories even easier, Costa Vapor offers customers an online shopping experience at You can also follow them on Facebook and Instagram. To see the wide range of products instore visit Costa Vapor, Avenida Ramon y Cajal, 17, Fuengirola, 29640 which is open Monday to Friday from 10am to 9pm and Saturday 10am to 5pm. It is now even easier to visit as Costa Vapor offer 30 minutes of free underground parking in the Paseo when you spend more than €10 in the shop so to find out more call 951 813 388 to speak to one of the team.

Marbella’s talent shows

MARBELLA MOMENTS BY NICOLE KING LAST Thursday the Jacksons performed at Puente Romano. I was concerned my enthusiasm for the evening would make the actual night an anticlimax; that however was not the case. The set up and service were as one would expect from a five-star venue and we all danced the night away. However I also think everyone there would concur when I say that possibly the best performance of the night was from the opening act by our very own local dynamic duo Mr Maph, Mike Harding and his amazing wife Simone Lisa. Together with the vocal talents of Thomas Henry and Kim Chandler, Rami on drums, Dixon on piano, Yamandu on synthesiser, Jose playing guitar and Neftali on bass, they put on a show worthy of any stage as headliners. If you weren’t there you really missed something special and for those of us who had the privilege to be there, we couldn’t have enjoyed it

FEELING PROUD: So many people give so much of themselves and for such different reasons.

more or felt more proud. It’s funny how we get blasé about the wonderful community we live in. We get to hear great talent perform in local bars and restaurants and so now we don’t really appreciate how lucky we are or how truly great they are!

It’s not just our wonderful array of performers either: talent comes in many shapes and sizes. Also felt last week I had another occasion to feel an immense sense of pride for a fellow Marbellí, Jan Weima. Jan is one of the founding members of the Triple A ani-

mal rescue centre in Marbella and for the past eight years I have personally seen how this man - and all the team and volunteers - strive, struggle, haggle and beg for funds, volunteers and support to keep the animal shelter going. This is the only rescue centre we

have, where stray or lost animals find a safe haven and are not at risk of extermination if not claimed in just 10 days. Once again they face imminent closure unless they get a regular income to be able to cope. Not everyone could face this desperate situation day after day for almost three decades. People who don’t have dogs might not empathise, but even if you consider our cleaner streets are thanks to the fact that we don’t have stray animals running around we should all feel the moral obligation to become members for just €5 a month, whether we’re an animal lover or not. If we did, we could end this vicious cycle once and for all ( I know that a concert and an animal rescue centre don’t have much in common except that so many people give so much of themselves and for such different reasons. I feel equally proud of them all because we are all equally important in our own way when we let our own particular talent show. #bettertogether • • NICK HORNE’S Rich Pick Freelance correspondent, London, England SINCE 1950 at least, the International Motor Show has ruled the roost. Located in exhibition halls in major cities with easy access and lots of parking as well as good rail and then air connections. The International Motor Shows have been the shop window that attracted, enthralled and seduced the drivers of the world. At one time there seemed to be motor cities in each country. Places where motor shows were held and national champions were lionised. Each motor city led the cheering for their champions. Detroit USA is no longer the location of major automobile manufacture, there are many other locations across the American continent that lay claim to be a motor city. Though the music will forever be ‘Motown,’ the car companies have largely moved on. Times they are a changing. Changing times have infected the world of the International Motor Show too as through the summer events like the Goodwood Festival of Speed held between July 4 and 7 on the Goodwood estate have extended their appeal from an admittedly largish group of petrol heads to a much wider audience with 200,000 committed automobile enthusiasts gath-

Monterey Car Week sees the first public showing of the Bentley EXP 100 GT.

Festivals or Motor Shows ering in the South Downs to see and hear hydrocarbon engines roar or electric motors whir spookily on the roads of one of the finest country estates of England. Not only, but to also see and hear jet suits fly and electric powered manned drones launch their campaign to join the Formula 1 circus in 2020. Vehicles of all shapes and sizes powered one way or another, collectively valued at almost £2 billion, captivated the public among the rolling hills of Sussex on the south coast of England. The ‘Festival of Speed’ saw the launch of 22 new models from 21 manufacturers, a further 26 recently launched cars which made their first dynamic appearances anywhere in the world. Putting the FOS on a par with the Geneva International Motor and Frankfurt International Motor Show. “At Goodwood

you can see it, sniff it and watch it go up the Hill,” said Mark Featherstone Goodwood’s sponsorship Director, “Our aim is to deliver a family friendly festival vibe with action packed activities and themed areas that provide a backdrop to world class cars and motor sports.” MINI celebrated its 60th birthday with a traditional sweet shop and a classic 1999 model personalised by none other than David Bowie and built a cobbled street in the middle of exhibition stands by other brands on the bleeding edge of technology. Volkswagen making headlines as it smashed a 20-year-old record for the fastest ever hill climb of the Goodwood Hill. The old record had been set by Nick Heidfeld in a McLaren-Mercedes Formula 1 car; VW’s former Le Mans winning driver broke the record at the wheel of the all-electric ID.R halo vehicle. A proclamation if one was yet needed of the arrival

of electric powered automobiles in the Big Time. Is this a trend that will see the demise of the International Motor Show? There is more than one straw in the wind that says an emphatic Yes; at least in Europe and the USA. This week another automobile festival begins; ‘Monterey Car Week & Concours d’Elegance,’ August 15 to 18 at Pebble Beach, California, USA. Positioned somewhat higher up the food chain than most car shows; Monterey Week could claim the title for Rich Pick Auto Salon except that the summer calendar of Motor Festivals is expanding with among others the ‘Salon Privé’ held at another English stately home Blenheim Palace from September 5 to 8, the challenge to the traditional Motor Show is clear. Where would you chose to enjoy looking over automobiles, motorcycles and even jetpacks? In a dreary city centre hall with dry ice blowers and a disco beat thumping or across the lawns of palaces with a glass of Champagne to hand? A question for the manufacturers as well as the enthusiast. Nick Horne, London, England

Great read HELLO, For a couple of weeks I have been reading the interesting, motivational, clarifying and uplifting columns of Joris Plu. I am so excited by his comments and advice that I look forward e a c h w e e k t o g e t t h e n e w E u ro Weekly! Congratulations and I hope to read much more of him. Dr Gerhard Steinruck

Top tribute HOLA Leapy, thank you so much for dedicating this week’s column to the great Joe Longhorne. I had no idea he had sadly passed away. If it had been one of the faceless wonders from Big Brother and similar rubbish I am sure it would have been all over the media!!! Disgraceful. I worked with Joe in Jersey in the 1970s. He was top of the bill and I was a female vocalist in the show, he was awesome. One week someone stole my handbag with my wages in and Joe paid me out of his own pocket, I will never forget him doing such a kind thing but that was the measure of the man, God bless him. I now live in t h e c o a s t a l r e s o r t o f M o j a c a r, Almeria and you will be pleased to know live music is alive and kicking here. Love reading your views every week and mostly agree with you. Wishing you all the best. Sandy Gold xx

WHILST the fireworks in Altea were absolutely fantastic, (I myself attended, to see the superb display with my husband). The after effects this morning were not so. We went to our usual beach Porto Senso, to be confronted with the remnants of the night before fireworks. In a world where we are constantly being told about all the plastic in the sea and the effects this is having on our environment, it was apparent this morning that it is not being taking that seriously. Just a few months ago in March I had the privilege of seeing a demonstration in L’Alfaz del Pi, where all schoolchildren took to the roads to show what plastic is doing to our environment.

MESS: Aftermath of a night of fireworks. Just seems like we are saying one thing and doing something totally different. I am not saying it is just here this is happening, I am saying we should all be looking at what we are doing and do something about it. I myself took time this


day to collect a lot of this plastic floating about in the sea where we were. I didn’t make a great impact, but it did look a lot better once I had finished. Just want to put it out there. Kind regards An avid reader (name and address supplied)

THE Spanish government’s publishing of the names of its citizens who died in a Nazi concentration camp is a positive step towards the country confronting its fascist past. The government revealed the names of almost 4,430 people who died in the Mauthausen-Gusen camp last week. Those who were sent to the camp were among around 10,000 others deported to concentration and death camps by former dictator Francisco Franco’s regime. Franco was closely aligned with Nazi Germany’s leader Adolf Hitler during the Second World War. The publishing of the victim’s names is the latest in a long series of steps taken by Spain to face up to the crimes of the Franco regime. The worst of these were the mass killings of opponents. Several of them were deported to Nazi camps and stripped of Spanish citizenship while thousands more died and were buried in mass graves which are still being unearthed. Spain adopted democracy in the late 1970s and efforts to root out the relics of fascism have continued ever since and have faced considerable opposition. There is still a Francisco Franco Foundation in Spain while an equivalent organisation for Hitler in Germany would be unthinkable. Plans to exhume Franco’s remains from the Valley of the Fallen mausoleum have also faced pushback including from the conservative Partido Popular (PP), a mainstream political party. But the latest move on the concentration camp shows exposing the crimes of fascism is necessary, just and long overdue.

FOR NEXT 7 DAYS there are only shadows.

LEO (July 24 - August 23)

Putting all of your eggs in one basket is rarely to be advised. It should particularly be avoided this week. For the sake of speed and ease it will be tempting to take short cuts and make decisions that are bland. These will, of their nature, not be of the ‘good’ or ‘great’ categories. You are capable of better.

With high energy you are seeking to get as much done as possible in a small amount of time. Rather than go at it ‘hammer and tongs’, it could be easier. Let someone help you out. They will find it satisfying and so you will both be happy.

PISCES (February 20 - March 20)

VIRGO (August 24 - September 23)

How you feel about someone will change dramatically during the week. This will surprise you. Thinking about it logically, though, you have been missing the point for some time. Someone who you always thought of as a friend turns out to be much more. How you deal with this is very much an individual thing.

You are freer than you imagine. Your imagination is letting you down a bit at the moment. Not for some time have opportunities been throwing themselves at you like this. The question is not if you should take up an offer but rather which one you should choose.

ARIES (March 21 - April 20) With your engine revving and the road ahead clear, a sense of great freedom is with you. There are those for whom this week is a chance to really make headway. For some, though, it is an irksome task. The difference is that some of you are taking a negative attitude. Make sure that yours is positive and you will have a chance to make real progress

TAURUS (April 21 - May 21) Wanting to put things right with someone close is a good instinct to have. It would certainly give you peace of mind. Indeed, this should be a quiet and peaceful week and one that is long overdue. Being successful in business is only one part of success. The light is dawning that what you have always wanted has changed.

GEMINI (May 22 - June 21) Someone very special could come into your life. You must, however, be at the ball to meet the prince. This opportunity for happiness is not going to jump up and bite you. A phone call could be the start of it all. Accept invitations and get out and about. Be aware of what is going on so that you can be in the right place at the right time.

CANCER (June 22 - July 23) What is the reason that you are being held back? Are you sure that you are, in reality, being held back at all? These are not trick questions. Being honest with your answers this week will lift a cloud from your horizon. Perhaps you are seeing ghosts when

Famous quote

Let the ruling classes tremble at a communist revolution. The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains. They have a world to win. Workers of all countries, unite!” Karl Marx, philosopher

LIBRA (September 24 - October 23) Give others the benefit of the doubt and your infinite patience this week. Situations will change from minute to minute. It would be a waste of energy to take anything at face value. Time is often the first thing to solve many problems. As with health, given a few days simple things will sort themselves out.

SCORPIO (October 24 - November 22) Although you are only too aware that you are capable of great good when you put your mind to it, it would be wise to bide your time this week. You may not realise that you are expending too much energy until your weary head hits the pillow. Be kind to your body. Some things that are taken for granted should not be so. This can lead to neglect. In neither home nor business is this recommended.

LIGHTNING PROOF: Planes are designed to withstand strikes.

DID YOU KNOW? NO plane has crashed due to being struck by lightning since 1963 because modern commercial passenger aircraft are designed to withstand strikes. Planes are engineered to allow the electric charge of a lightning bolt run through them and out of them without causing any damage. Their aluminium frame sends electricity round its body and back into the air through antenna-like devices known as static wicks. It is estimated that one plane is struck by lightning every year on average.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23 - December 21) It may seem that everyone wants your attention at the moment. There are times when you would like nothing more than to go away and clear your mind. This is not only possible but essential. You need some quiet moments. Even a day away can renew your spirits and energy.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 20) So strong have been the practical considerations of late that you have been in a bad position. You need to live more for the ‘now’ and less for the ‘tomorrow’. Of course, life should be a mixture of both but sometimes it all gets a bit jumbled. Getting a few hours peace and quiet on your own may be all that you need. Getting enough sleep is also important in this situation.

CRACK Wild West hitmen brothers Eli (John C Reilly) and Charlie (Joaquin Phoenix) Sisters have been tasked with killing gold prospector Hermann Warm in Oregon in the 1850s. They are in the pay of an enigmatic wealthy man known only as the Commodore who claims Warm stole from him. But Eli has his doubts. He thinks it is suspicious that anyone would steal from someone so dangerous but Charlie disagrees. They are racing against another Commodore employee, the scout Morris, who has other ideas in The Sisters Brothers.

JORIS PLU SOME days ago, I had a fantastic meal with a very good friend of mine. We were talking for hours. There was a lot to say, to discover. At a certain moment we were talking about when and if people who were really in trouble would ask for help. If it would bring people closer to each other. Something that looks so simple and easy but which is for many of us so hard to do. We are not brought up like this. Or, we have to solve our own problems. And so many more answers. And to a certain extent this is true. We need to sort out our own life and work. But on the other hand there are circumstances where someone really needs help. This can be when one is moving from one house to another and in desperate need of helping hands. Or it could be about mental guidance, financial help, etcetera. We all need to find out our ourselves where the limit is, when to ask

Asking for help brings people closer or not to ask for any help in our life. The question we asked ourselves was if this would really bring people closer. The answer which may of course differ from your own way of thinking was yes. It will bring people closer. There is an extra human bonding between two or more people at the moment of giving and receiving help. People who have been afraid to ask for help and have done it anyway say afterwards that most of the time they are very surprised the other person was so kind and so happy they could be of help. It involved, for both parties, a wonderful feeling. So yes, asking for help brings people closer. We humans have it in us. We want to help others. This is being human. It is part of who we are. Having compassion, wanting to help others is for

HELPING OTHERS: Is perfectly normal.

SPARKLE: Keep your eyes looking great.

Young and beautiful eyes TAKING care of your eyes and what surrounds them is vital to any beauty regime. Here are some suggestions as to what you can do to keep your eyes looking wonderful. • Retinol One of the goals of cosmetics is to provide collagen. Retinol stimulates the formation of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, which are responsible for the cells to renew naturally. This improves skin hydration, which smooths the skin and can help to make the eyes look younger. • Hyaluronic acid Hyaluronic acid supplements can help your skin look and feel more supple by aiding the skin to retain moisture. This is particularly effective for the area around the eyes. • Under eye masks These little gel pads offer cooling, calming relief to decrease puffy eyes and moisturise

the skin. • Chill out with a cucumber Cold constricts your blood vessels which can help reduce puffy eyes and get rid of dark circles. So relax with cool cucumber slices on the eyes. • Get your beauty sleep A good night’s sleep helps you look and feel at your best. • Puffy face? You can really cut down on facial puffiness by reducing your intake of salt and alcohol and make sure you’re eating a balanced diet of skinfriendly foods, as with any beauty advice, the golden rule is to drink plenty of water. • Always wear your sun protection Sun damage is said to be responsible for the vast majority of premature ageing. So use broad spectrum SPF protection of at least SPF35, preferably SPR50 on your face, even on cloudy days.

the biggest part of us as normal as eating and sleeping. So next time you really need help just ask for it. And next time someone asks you for help just give it. With all of your heart. We need to help others, help them to grow, to stay healthy etcetera. Not only asking for help but also giving help will bring people closer. Much closer than you might think. Just try it out if you are not already doing so. Asking for help does not mean you are a failure. It simply means you are just one of those humans who needs help at that certain moment in life. That you are taking care of yourself. And there is completely nothing wrong with it. Just love helping people, animals, nature… whatever needs help.

7 Tips to manage back pain


and make it harder to move. So try and shift positions every 20 - 30 minutes.

WHEN back pain strikes it can leave you feel i n g st u c k a n d h e lp les s , e s p ec ia lly when you’re busy, on holiday or away from home and not sure where to go. So if you’ve been struck this summer try my top tips to keep moving:

5. Bar stool - possibly the only time I’ll recommend a bar for treatment! Perching on a bar stool can often be the most comfortable position as you are supported but not in a full sitting position. And remember my favourite piece of research - a beer is just as effective a painkiller as a paracetamol!!

1. Ice - a pack of frozen peas will do. Always wrap it in a damp tea towel to protect your skin. Use it for 10 minutes every half hour. Reduces inflammation and helps to numb the area

6. Stand tall - try and concentrate on standing well. Focus on your core muscles and pelvic floor and use them to support you. Actively relax your back muscles. If you’re in front of a mirror (cleaning your teeth is good!) pull your chin in so your ears are over your shoulders, draw your shoulders back and down and bring ankles, hips and shoulders into a line.

2. Toilets - If you have a really bad back, sitting on the loo can be a struggle. How do you get down and then get back up? The answer, sit facing the cistern and use it to support yourself down and back up! BACK PAIN: Can leave you feeling stuck and helpless. 3. Car seat - Getting in and out of the car (perhaps to get to your physio appointment?!) can be tricky. A simple trick is to put a flat plastic bag on the car seat (to reduce friction), sit

down with both legs still out and swivel round. Do the opposite to get out.

4. Position - changing position can often seem the hardest part, but staying too long in one position can leave you feeling stiff

7. Get help - pain is a protection mechanism - it gets you to stop moving so your body can recover. But if it lasts more than 24-48 hours get proper, qualified help!

Senior exercise WE are all getting older, by the minute. So here we look at some less aggressive and lower impact ways of getting fit, no matter how young you are. • Walking Walking works the cardiovascular system and burns calories. To get your heart rate up, walk faster than a stroll. Picking up the pace can increase the intensity of your workouts. Add short

bursts of speed or walk up an occasional steep hill. • Dancing One of the best things about dancing is that while you're having fun you can meet new people and build a superb social life. • Cycling Cycling is an aerobic exercise that works your lower body and cardiovascular system. Start slowly and increase the length of

your cycling sessions gradually. • Swimming Swimming a few lengths involves most of the muscle

groups, and you’ll get a good aerobic workout if you increase the pace. • Nordic walking Nordic walking is a full-body exercise that’s easy on the joints and suitable for all ages and fitness levels. It’s a suitable activity for people with joint conditions or those who may be carrying some extra body weight. • Yoga Yoga can improve both your physical fitness and your general well-being through a series of posture and breathing exercises.

Regular yoga practice helps develop strength, balance and flexibility. • Tai chi This ancient Chinese art promotes mental and physical wellbeing. Movements are generally slow and controlled. This means you won’t improve your cardiovascular fitness or get a calorieburning workout, but it does improve strength, flexibility and balance. • Pilates Pilates focuses on rebalancing the body and improving posture through slow, controlled move-

ments and exercises. Regular practice can help you improve muscle strength and your overall sense of well-being. It can be really good for people who can¡t jump around too much. • Bowls You can enjoy bowls at any age and with no experience. Although not the most energetic of games, bowls is good for posture, flexibility, balance and hand-eye coordination. • Gardening What better way to get fit and to achieve something beautiful at the same time.

Ready, steady, go!

RUNNING: Get fit and have fun.

RUNNING is free, you can do it anywhere, it burns more calories than any other mainstream exercise and it can reduce your risk of long-term illnesses, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes and stroke. It can also boost your mood and keep your weight under control. Okay, you have bought those new trainers and are keen to get out for a nice jog, but here are some top tips for beginners. It really helps to have someone about the same level of ability as you to run with. You’ll encourage each other when you’re not so keen to run. You’ll feel that you do not want to let your running partner down, and this will help motivate you. Firstly, to avoid getting a stitch do not eat anything solid about two hours before your run and only drink in small quantities. Many muscle-related injuries are caused by people failing to warm up before exercise. Start each run with a gentle warm-up of at least five minutes. This can include quick walking, marching on the spot, knee lifts, side stepping and climbing stairs.

Start running at a moderate pace, where you can easily hold a conversation) and then try to relax whilst you run. Try to take short, easy steps, which are more effective than long, powerful strides that act as a brake, slowing your forward momentum with every footfall. Keep your arms in tight, for a really economical use of your energy. Initially, you should alternate between two minutes of jogging and two minutes of walking. Increase your running intervals by one minute per workout until you can run the entire distance in one, without having to walk. Schedule your training so you run one day and rest the next. This simple training plan can help you achieve the greatest training effect and avoid overuse injuries. When you finish your run, give yourself a few minutes to cool down after each run by walking and doing a few stretches. Keep your running interesting by adding variety. Running the same route over and over again can become boring. Vary your distances, pace and routes. Have fun.

This week Celebrity Chef from Ready Steady Cook & Fellow Master Chef Steven Saunders, proprietor of The Little Geranium in La Cala creates a new tasting menu dish from his famous duck salad.

New famous duck salad! Steven Saunders FMCGB The Little Geranium La Cala de Mijas & Marbella

PRETTY much everyone knows the story about our famous duck salad dish served to Princess Diana in the 90’s with the promise to her that I would never take it off the menu under her orders! However 20 or so years on I have been desperate to evolve it and if I were an artist it would be like painting the same picture for over 20 years! So the other week I came up with the idea of serving two styles of duck salad in one so that you experience the rare juicy breast of duck cooked in a sousvide machine (or gently to keep it rare) coupled with the crispy sticky spicy confit leg. Good food is made great not only with its flavours but by textures too. Whatever you are

Princess Diana used to rave about has a lot of leaves and segments of lime with plenty of coriander. It is delicious but it is j u s t a s a l a d a n d i t ’s t h e c h e f ’s job to evolve and enhance dishes. This one is less of a salad and more of a plate of art but with levels of flavours to really stimulate your taste buds. I think Princess Diana would approve but I also think that she would prefer the version served to her in the early 90’s! I must just emphasise that the picture below is tasting menu size (one of about eight courses) so you can increase the portion size if you are serving it as a starter or main dish. Enjoy cooking this creative dish and do let me know by email how you get on!

cooking it is taken to the next level when you add crunch alongside softness and at Michelin level every component of the dish should have some interesting exciting flavours, not just be there on the plate. For example if you add a few wild mushrooms to this duck dish you could pickle some of the mushrooms adding yet another tier of flavour and then when you bring it all together it tastes amazing and not just good. Therefore this week I have been playing with the tiers of flavours of the duck salad for the tasting menu and asking clients what they think. Their response has been so positive that I thought I should share the recipe with you! There are some intricate cooking techniques here so many of you might prefer to let me do it but if you are in the mood for cooking something sensually fantastic this weekend then this is the dish for you. The original version that

The team behind the new duck dish.

Steven Saunders’s opinions are his own and are not necessarily representative of those of the publishers, advertisers or sponsors.

New famous duck salad TO make this dish easier to cook at home I am suggesting that you buy the duck leg confit as although it’s not difficult to make, it is time consuming in a domestic kitchen. Ingredients for four (starter size) 2 whole duck breasts skin on (Magret de Pato) 2 duck legs cooked confit meat picked off the bone A little cornflour Seasoning For the sauce 250ml of sweet chilli sauce (700ml bottles are available from some supermarkets) 1 tablespoon of soy sauce 2 tablespoons of white cooking wine 150 ml of chicken stock 1 tablespoon of plum (or hoi

sin) sauce (available in most supermarkets) 1 teaspoon of fish sauce (Thai Nam Pla) 1 stick of fresh lemon grass finely shredded (or zest of one lemon) 1 stick of cinnamon 1 red onion cut in quarters 3 pieces of star anise 2 cloves garlic peeled but left whole 2 teaspoons of sesame oil 1 piece of fresh ginger (approx 3cm) peeled and finely shredded Seeds of half a fresh pomegranate to finish 1 fresh Spanish fig quartered (optional) First prepare the sauce by mixing all the ingredients above together and heating in a sauce

pan. Add the chicken stock to loosen it a little. Cook for at least 30 minutes on a low heat. Set aside and allow to cool. It should be nice and syrupy. Remove all the visual hard spices like the cinnamon, onion and star anise etc with a slotted spoon. To sousvide (or cook) the duck Don’t panic because you can cook the duck on top of the stove, but the sousvide machine (heated water bath) breaks down the fat and makes it easier to crisp the skin with no fat underneath and it stops the duck shrinking. For sousvide cook the duck breasts in a sealed vacuum pack for two hours at 55ºC. Alterna-

tively cook slowly in a cool pan skin side down until skin is crispy (about 20 mins slowly). Take the picked confit duck leg meat and toss it through some cornflour and dust off the flour with the meat in a sieve so that it isn’t thickly coated. Fry the meat in a preheated fryer at full power approx 190ºC (or use a large wok) cook for two minutes or until crispy and season immediately with flakes of salt. Drain onto tissue Take approx one flat tablespoon of the finished sauce per person and add it to the duck with a few seeds of pomegranate then mix well together. To serve Slice the cooked pink duck breast with crisp skin on and

arrange on a plate. Add some crispy duck leg to the plate and some micro cresses and some orange puree (optional) see note below, add a few drops of the chilli sauce to the plate. (Add a small wedge of glazed fig or pickled mushrooms as garnish). See photo. Orange puree The orange puree is made by blanching a whole orange that has been scored from top to bottom and blanched for two minutes in boiling water. Refresh in ice water and blanch again at least five times (this removes the

bitterness.) Make a light caramel with sugar and water and cut up the blanched orange removing seeds and mix the pieces of orange with the caramel. Blend in a food processor or thermomix until smooth and add approx 200ml of fresh orange juice whilst blending to help it to a perfect, smooth thick puree.

Stay and be true to yourself ROBERT SHALLIS ‘BIRDS of a feather flock together.’ There’s certainly something to be said about that phrase. In many ways the company you keep can define who you are, we’re usually drawn to making friends with those who like the same things or have similar traits, we’re also drawn to people we aspire to be like, or at the very least possess qualities that may resonate with us. It has been said ‘you eventually become the average of the people you spend most of your time with.’ However, I believe that it has more to do with the amount of time we spend with people which has the greater impact, thus moulding a large part of the person you become. What happens when you find yourself spending time with people who are not actually like you? People that don’t share the same views or values? Or have a different moral standing? If these people disempower you, surely the question to ask yourself is,

DON’T COMPROMISE: Be yourself.

‘why I am spending time with these people?’ Failing to be your true self will inhibit true friendships as you’re not expressing the real you. If the real you is hidden and a false personality created to fit in, in order to please others, this will certainly lead you to feel imprisoned as the creative wonderful potential you have is simply locked away

LETTERS FROM CANARIES By Barbara Belt WHILST summer temperatures down here on the islands are normal, we’re still being bombarded with very high UV rays. It’s dropped to nine today, a small mercy but an improvement on the 12 and 13 we’ve had over the last month or so. Here’s the UV risk scale: 0-2, no danger; 3-5, little risk of unprotected exposure to the sun; 6-7, high risk; 8-10, very high risk and 11+, which has been the case for some time, extremely high risk. It feels a bit like being microwaved. The beaches, nevertheless, are full of sunbathing tourists, although locals lurk in the shade whenever possible. No warnings are offered to visitors. Nothing on news or weather forecasts, so as not to disturb the tourism=money status quo, but if you’re coming to the Canaries, or in fact going anywhere, be warned: check the UV count. Ask Aussies about what happens when a Caucasian population carries on regardless under a hole in the ozone layer. Although this is just one of many climate peculiarities being experienced all over the planet, affecting global warming believers and non-believers indiscriminately, our high UV is unusual. The UK and Northern Europe are sweating in unprecedented temper-

and those who deserve to appreciate and welcome it are deprived of it. Do you find yourself: concerned by what others think, trying to please others, fearful of their disapproval, conscious of your mannerisms and what you say? Shyness, lack of self-confidence, nervousness, or fear of criticism can all be contributing factors to hiding your

true personality and stop you from naturally getting along with others. Moreover, you’ll be missing out on people who would be better suited to the real you and enable you to be your real self. A good way to start is to invest in people who are investable and not those that you feel you have an obligatory allegiance to. Who or what are in-

vestable people? These are people who genuinely care about you, remain loyal and accept and love you for who and what you are. They are people who no matter what their status is in life know they are no better than you. Some may say these type of people are hard to find, look closely, they’re everywhere, but you will never notice or meet them if you are not aligned to them, simply put, if you are spending your time and energy on relationships that do not really serve you, you will miss investable people. Compromising your true self, character and nature will not give you the fulfilment you so very much deserve. You can make a good impression on people by not concerning yourself as to what he or she may think of you. This can be difficult at first but when someone judges you remember, they are simply defining themselves, not defining you. Refuse to get caught up in who you think you should be, relax and be who you are. You are just one decision away from ‘taking action’ and becoming your true self. So I urge you, make that choice today and watch the miracles of life start to unfold.

BEACH PARTY: Combined music with safety information. atures, but even at 39º, the UV’s still a safe 3-5. As we languish, preferrably under big trees, there’s plenty of time for tertulias about the post election political circus, notable here because the local Coalición Canaria party has lost its decadesold hold on the Canarian Autonomous Government to PSOE, the Spanish socialist party. Our new president is Ángel Victor Torres, whose investiture was livened up by his four-year-old son shouting ‘Papi’ - at which parliament erupted in applause - as he became president. See:

We shall see. At this no-news time of year, I often get concerned calls about a bit of La Palma dropping off, plunging into the sea and causing the mother of all tsunamis, which will obliterate New York, indeed the entire US eastern seaboard, and may cause trouble here. Thrill to

Got a wall for that, Trump?! And here’s a selection of Canarian news bites: Lanzarote’s grape harvest is 50 per cent down on last year’s bumper 3.7 million kilos. We’re talking Malvasia wine, beloved of Shakespeare. Mysteriously, a second dead cow has been found floating off the coast ‘in an advanced state of decomposition.’ No connection between these two news items, as far as we know. Fred Olsen Ferries celebrate 30 years of service between Lanzarote and Fuerteventura, where Beach Party Caleta de Fuste combined music with safety info on the Canaries 1,500 km coastline. Another bash, the Isla Bonita Love Festival in La Palma, was a resounding success: professional, well-organised, free and good fun. See, courtesy of El Apurón: cias/sociedad/129936/isla-bonita-love-festival2019-official-aftermovie/ More ferry news,(ferries are important to islands): the Volcán de Tagoro, a new state of the art Naviera Armas boat, built by Incat, is on its way to the Canaries from Tasmania. With luck, I’ll enjoy it on my forthcoming August tour of the islands, a last fling on my soon-to-be-Brexited 75 per cent EU resident travel discount, sleeping in my ancient Nissan Patrol, discovering new places, great nature and nice people while I can still afford it.

CASSANDRA NASH A WEEKLY LOOK - and not entirely impartial reaction to the Spanish political scene

KING FELIPE’S speech following Cataluña’s unauthorised and illegal referendum on October 1 2018 wasn’t his best although his best are hardly stirring. His words sounded as though they were written by Mariano Rajoy’s speechwriters and, not surprisingly, they made no impression on the Catalan separatists Spain’s king had another shot at mediation recently during the royal family’s traditional Holaorientated summer photo call at the Marivent palace in Mallorca. Speaking off-the-cuff as the Infantas and their mother s m i l e d t o o r d e r, F e l i p e s e n t a clear message to Spain’s political parties. “The best thing is a solution for a government before calling more elections,” he replied in answer to a reporter’s question. For once he got it right, but nobody will heed him this time either. The Partido Popular and Ciu-

Unheeded words dadanos failed to perceive that Felipe could be referring to them while Pablo Iglesias won’t listen to anything a king has to say, anyway. A n d w h i l e P e d r o S a n c h e z ’s resoluteness is admirable, many socialist voters are starting to believe that acceding to P o d e m o s ’s w i l d e s t d e m a n d s would be preferable to the only other option open to him.

Dark days ahead

ON 24 June, 2016, Britons living in Spain already knew that Brexit would complicate their lives. That was before a hard Brexit was on the cards and now Boris Johnson is preparing to impose this on a country that doesn’t know what it is letting itself in for. Brussels knows what to expect and has been making the contin-

gency plans that are still being improvised in the UK. Spain has been doing its homework, too. Everyone knows what is going to happen on Halloween except the Brexiteers who believe that October 31 is a 2019 version of VE Day. How long before they realise that they’ve won their battle but lost a war?

Look on the bright side A POLL by Key Data for the pro-Podemos online publication, Publico, predicted that the PSOE and Unidas-Podemos would take 174 seats, two short of an overall majority, in a new election. This is unlikely as Pablo Iglesias’ popularity has plummeted since the failed Investiture and these results apply to an election tomorrow, not next November. Voters would be so weary of politics, politicians and promises by then that most would stay at home, especially if the weather were bad. But as always, the hard-core Right would turn out in force producing another hung parliament or, if Spain is to be truly unlucky, a PP-Cs-Vox coalition. Popularity has plummeted.

Double standards THERE is a socialist government in Navarra because EHBildu abstained during the investiture vote, allowing the P S O E ’s M a r i a C h i v i t e t o b e come regional president. This allowed the Partido Popular, Ciudadanos and Vox to insist again that the PSOE consorts with terrorists. EH-Bildu was the political arm of the defunct terrorist organisation, ETA, but is the situation in Navarra worse than in Madrid, Murcia or Andalucia where Vox’s votes enabled PP-Cs governments? T h e r e ’s o n e s e t o f rules for the PSOE but another for the P P, C s a n d Vo x w h o believe that they’re the ones with the copyright.

TESTIMONIAL Hi everybody at EWN Doggie Angells would like to thank you all for your help over the last year. We have had a great deal of success with rehoming our dogs. Sometimes dogs can be with us for long periods. It’s funny when they are adopted people often say we have been looking at this dog in the paper week after week and we kept wanting to adopt him but the time was just not right. He's still in the paper and we are now ready to have him. So that is great - patience pays off. Again thank you all, we very much appreciate all what you do for our charity. Things slow up for us in August, thank goodness it gives us time to catch up. Kind regards Denise and all at Doggie Angells.

MOTORING MOTORING FACT BMW is bringing the four-door coupe concept that has already enjoyed great success in higher vehicle classes into the premium compact segment, with the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe, which will premiere at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November 2019. Backed up by innovative control/ operation and connectivity technology, excellent everyday usability and exceptional dynamic capability. This show-stealing spin-off from the classical sedan format is underpinned by BMW’s front-wheel-drive architecture and shares an array of technological developments with the recently unveiled new BMW 1 Series. One feature of the new car’s technical armoury is the ARB (near-actuator wheel slip limitation). ARB uses a slip controller positioned directly in the engine control unit rather than in the control unit for the DSC (Dynamic Stability Control) system. Eliminating long signal paths means that information is relayed three times quicker, while the driver perceives wheel slip being brought under control up to 10 times faster. This innovative traction

the-art connectivity. The first-ever BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe has elegant and sporty and extrovert lines with cutting-edge connectivity and generous levels of spaciousness. It, therefore, has all the ingredients to fuel the enthusiasm of new, design-led customers. The BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe has been conceived as a global offering and represents an appealing addition to the model line-up, in particular in markets where the sedan body style enjoys strong popularity.

control technology teams up with the likewise standard BMW Performance Control (yaw moment distribution) to deliver a direct and intense driving experience with both front-wheel drive and the BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel-drive of the BMW M235i xDrive. The sporty range-topping model is fitted with the most powerful fourcylinder engine in the BMW Group line-up, producing 225 kW (306 hp). Flamboyant lines and state-of-

MCLAREN AUTOMOTIVE, the British manufacturer of supercars and high performance luxury cars, has expanded its family with the introduction of the 720S Spider. Combining maximum aerodynamic load, minimising resistance, improving powertrain cooling and optimising aerodynamic performance, all these forms produce a general appearance similar to a futuristic sculpture, formed by the air flowing around and through it. A new electronically activated retractable hard top is integrated into the design, as are new buttresses. Like all McLaren cars, the new 720S Spider has a carbon fibre structure at its core, in this case it has been designated the Monocoque IIS. The strength, rigidity and light weight of the McLaren Monohull is the basis for the dynamic excellence by which McLaren cars are known. The Monohull II-S is an evolution of the Monohull II of the Coupe, without the ‘backbone’ that runs through the cabin from front to back. The rearmost section of the upper structure is also unique to the Spider, to accommodate the retractable rigid roof. Additionally, the head rail through the windshield has been revised to integrate the central locking mechanism.

PREMIERE: BMW 2 Series Gran Coupé.

Supercar the Mclaren 720S Spider

HIGH PERFORMANCE: McLaren 720S Spider.

The McLaren 4-litre double turbocharged V8 engine that powers the 720S Spider has the engine mounted on the front half for exceptional driving and response purity, delivers 720CV and 770Nm and, since it is the lightest in the 720S Spider class and with the resulting power / weight ratio of 540CV per tonne in dry weight It is no surprise that its performance is extreme. Its acceleration is nothing less than phenomenal, going from 0 to 100km / h (0-62mpph) in 2.9 seconds and from 0 to 200km / h (0124mph) in just 7.9 seconds. Only 0.1 seconds below the Coupe’s pace and when conditions permit, the 720S Spider can continue to accelerate to the speed of a Coupe, matching the maximum speed of 341km / h (212mph) with the roof raised. Even with the roof down, the maximum speed is maintained extraordinarily at 325km / h (202mph). Minor variations in performance arise from aerodynamic differences and the additional 49kg of the Spider. The McLaren 720S Spider has become famous for its innovative design, cutting-edge technologies and a fierce pace. All this coupled with the sophistication offered by ease of everyday use thanks to its extreme performance status.


ROAD TEST by Nick Fletcher LARGE MPV models have great appeal for families who need space for children and lots of luggage, so day-to-day practicality and versatility are key factors - and so is price. Some of the larger MPVs can cost well over €30,000 but for buyers on a budget, the Opel Combo Life is a smart alternative. Made by Opel and Vauxhall - both now part of the giant French PSA Group the Combo Life can seat seven on three rows of seats and still have substantial load space in the boot, with prices starting at €22,485 (£20,135). It has to be said that the Combo Life isn’t the most stylish in the class - it was designed as a van rather than specifically as an MPV - but it more than atones with its value for money and its surprisingly pleasant driving dynamics. There are petrol and diesel engines, manual and auto gearboxes and the option of five or seven seats. My test version was a seven-seat model with a perky and economiTHE new Citroën Berlingo van has been awarded ‘Van of the Year’ and ‘Light Van of the Year’ in the very first Company Van Today awards. The innovative Overload Indicator technology available to order on the new Citroën Berlingo was also recognised, clinching the magazine’s first ‘Technology Award.’ The new Citroën Berlingo van has carried off no less than three awards in the inaugural Company Van Today Awards 2019. New Berlingo van has been awarded the all-important ‘Van of the Year’ and ‘Light Van of the Year’ in the very first Company Van Today Awards. It doesn’t stop there for Citroën’s newest van either. New Berlingo van is available with 20 driver assistance systems, all designed to provide a safer and less stressful environment for van drivers. One such technology is the Overload Indicator, which warns the driver if the vehicle is overloaded. Overloading is an offence and can adversely affect vehicle handling as well as fuel consumption. In addition, it can also cause accelerated wear on components, including braking, suspension and transmission parts. Company Van Today has pre-

Mas for Movistar MALLORCAN cyclist Enric Mas has signed with the Movistar Team for three seasons. Mas, 24, who competed in this year’s Tour de France for the first time, comes from the Belgian team Deceuninck-Quick Step. The Spaniard excelled in the French competition, where he held the white jersey as leader of the Youth classification for a while,

finally finishing third in the category. A native of Artá, Mas finished second in the Vuelta a España in 2018, which is the greatest achievement of his career to date, where he also won one of the stages. Mas trained in the ranks of the Contador Foundation until 2015 when he moved to the Deceuninck-Quick Step.

WINS AGAIN: Iballa Moreno won for the fourth year running.

Windy in Tenerife SPANIARD Iballa Moreno has taken the women’s title at the Tenerife PWA World Cup wind surfing championships. Her consistent performances saw her lift the trophy for the fourth consecutive year. Justyna Sniady proved that her first podium in Gran Canaria last month was a sign of things to come as the Pole

grabbed another podium position. Sniady got the better of Sarah-Quita Offringa for the second time this season as she defeated the Aruban in the semifinals. Sniady couldn’t find the jump she needed in the final to rival Iballa, but two second placed finishes in a row means

SPAIN has announced its squad for its upcoming series against Finland as the nation continues its first steps into playing full cricket internationals. Hamza Dar is in line for his international debut for Cricket España, named for the first time in Spain’s 13-man squad. Hamza comes in place of Tauqeer Hussain, while his brother, Mustafa Dar, misses out, as does Adam Algar with the Spain squad trimmed to 13 players from the 15 selected for the March tri-series against Malta that made history. Two comprehensive wins over the Maltans marked the first full T20Is Spain have ever played and the matches with Finland will continue the country’s foray into full internationals. Captain Christian Muñoz Mills hopes the addition of Hamza will give his side further spin options in the bowling department. “We think we need another spinner in the team so that is why we changed a quick bowler in Tauqeer Hussain and for a spinning allrounder in Hamza Dar,” said Mills. “We hope to play hard and attacking cricket. That’s the way we always play and we need to continue to do that. “Every player needs to play their game and if we do that, we should

toric partnership between the two nations that will see Los Toros (The Bulls) return the favour and host The Finnish Bears in the spring of 2020.

This follows on from Spain’s victories over Malta in La Manga earlier this year, wins that saw Spain move into 41st in the ICC’s World T20I rankings, the first time Los Toros have featured in the list after the ICC announced that every T20 match between member nations would be granted full T20I status, as of January, 2019. The series will begin on Friday, August 16 with Cricket España taking on Finland in a warm-up development game between the two sides before the series begins in earnest the following day. There will be a double header on Saturday, August 17 before the third and final match of the series gets underway on Sunday, August 18 with all three matches taking place at the host’s Kerava National Ground. Los Toros will be led in Finland by coach David Gelling, who replaces Pete Williams. Gelling has previously worked with Hampshire County Cricket Club in the UK and has a longstanding relationship with Cricket España. He will be supported in Finland by physio Rob Francis. The Cricket España team in full: Christian Muñoz Mills (captain), Faran Afzal, Awais Ahmed, Atif Ali, Yasir Ali, Muhammad Asjed, Hamza Dar, Zulqarnain Haider, Paul Hennessy, Kuldeep Karan, Vinod Kumar, Ravi Panchal and Tom Vine.

Nadal takes Canadian glory Spain stays in By Dilip Kuner RAFAEL NADAL has extended his Masters 1000 titles record with a win in Montreal on Sunday. He beat Russian Daniil Medvedev 6-3, 6-0 in windy conditions at the Coupe Rogers in Montreal to take his 35th Masters 1000 title, Medvedev had promised not to be intimidated in his first Masters 1000 final, but despite some strong rallies he was simply blown away by the Spaniard in his 51st Masters 100 final. It has to be said that Nadal had a stroke of luck in that he was fully rested as his semi-final was a no contest after opponent Gaël Monfils had to withdraw with an ankle injury. Nadal said: “He played a great game, some very long rallies. For me, personally, it was important to start the match in good shape. He came to that match playing so well, playing a lot of matches [in recent] weeks. For me, it was a different story. I only played three matches on hard before this one.”

CHAMPION: Rafa Nadal won his 35th Masters 1000 title. “I think I played a good first game, too. He had a break point. I played well. I saved that game. After that I think I played a solid match, my best match of the week so far without a doubt.” He may have faced a break point, but Nadal saved it and that was his opponent’s only opportunity of the match. Medvedev said: “My tactic was to not give him that much time, to try to play deep, to not

give him easy shots. It was kind of working in the beginning of the match, but then I completely lost the momentum. It was only him controlling the play, controlling the game.” Nadal said: “I did a lot of things well: changing directions, changing rhythms during the point. The slice worked well this afternoon. I played some high balls, then changed down the line. I think I played

smart this afternoon.” This was Nadal’s third tour title of the year after Rome and Roland Garros, but perhaps surprisingly the first time he has successfully defended a hard court title. It was his fifth Canadian Masters 1000 crown (2005, 2008, 2013, 2018). The only set he has ever dropped at a Canadian Masters final was against Andre Agassi during Nadal’s 2005 win.

SPAIN’s athletes are celebrating after they took seventh spot in the European Athletics Team Championships Super League finals in Poland. It means they keep their place at the top table of European athletics after the league was reduced from 12 to eight teams in two years’ time. Hosts Poland won their first continental title in the gold division with 335 points, followed by Germany (315.5), France (305.5), Italy (304), Great Britain (302.5), Spain (285.5) and Ukraine (218). These seven teams will remain in the top flight and they will be joined by Portugal who have been promoted. For Spain, Orlando Ortega (110m hurdles), Fernando Carro (3,000m steeplechase) and Adel Mechaal (3,000m) won their events and were central in keeping Spain in the top tier. While Spain was celebrating, the Polish team was switching into party mode after their home win. With 10 victories across the weekend it was a landmark weekend in Bydgoszcz for the Polish team, winning the European Athletics Team Championships Super League title for the first time. Not only did it come on home ground in front of an enthusiastic crowd at the Zawisza Stadium, but it was also a particularly suitable way to celebrate the centenary year of the Polish Athletic Association.

MARC MARQUEZ may have been setting records recently, but Ducati have sent a reminder that they too are proud of their past.

He passed Marquez (Repsol Honda team) to sweep to victory in a race that could not have been closer as the two MotoGP

MotoGP thriller in Austria

greats treated the crowds to a sensational race at the myWorld Motorrad Grand Prix von Österreich. New kid on the block Fabio Quartararo (Petronas Yamaha SRT) took third in a breathless race that saw Britain’s Cal Crutchlow (LCR Honda Castrol) crash out of contention early on. He hit the back of Tito Rabat’s Reale Avinita Racing

Ducati on turn three of lap two after the Spaniard had to take avoiding action to avoid Pol Espargaro’s (Red Bull KTM Factory Racing) bike. Marquez on pole and Dovizioso made superb starts and reached turn one in first and second. There was nothing to choose between the two, neither willing to give an inch. But they were perhaps too intent on their own race at this stage and mistakes into turn three allowed Quartararo to take the lead, with Jack Miller (Pramac Racing) and Team Suzuki Ecstar’s Alex Rins getting by Marquez and Dovizioso on the exit. Dovi then got by Marquez into turn four on the opening lap

as the polesitter was demoted to P5. Meanwhile, Quartararo was getting the hammer down as the rookie took a 0.5 lead into lap two. However, Dovizioso and Marquez have too much talent to stay down the field, and they both started to recover from their opening lap. Dovi was shortly back up to second, with Miller in third holding off Marquez. Just behind was the fast-starting Valentino Rossi (Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP), having climbed to fifth from P10. Marquez soon got past Miller, then Dovi and Marquez blasted past Quartararo on lap seven. They gradually pulled out a lead, but there was nothing be-

Dovi said: “This victory was really important for me. At the end of the race I had good grip on the tyre and this allowed me to attempt that incredible overtaking at the final corner.”
