FIRE STRUCK A DOZEN homes had to be evacuated after flames swirled round a Costa del Sol urbanisation. And in a busy night for the emergency services 50 people had to be ushered to safety from a block of flats in Estepona when a blaze started in an apartment. Fire struck in the pine woods at La Arquita, in the Sierra Crestellina (Casares), leading to four homes in Arroyo Hondo and six in Celima, having to be abandoned temporarily on Tuesday night. One man took refuge in his swimming pool until firefighters arrived to rescue him. Forestry firefighting service Infoca mobilised 120 firefighters who fought through the night to bring the blaze under control, which they succeeded in doing by Wednesday (yesterday) morning. Many of them had already had to fight a fire in woodland near Estepona, which was extinguished earlier that night. The Casares fire started around 7pm and was declared a level one emergency at 8.50pm on Tuesday. Initially six aircraft and 35 firefighters were used to combat the flames.

FIRE STRUCK: In the pine woods around Casares. When the aircraft had to withdraw at nightfall extra firefighters were sent in to continue the operation on land. Meanwhile a fire broke out in the apartment block in Avenida San Lorenzo, Estepona, at about 11pm. The 50 residents were evacuated as a precaution, with a 54-year-old man needing treatment for smoke inhalation. Firefighters of the Provincial Consortium of Malaga, National Police, Local Police, Civil Protection and ambulances raced to the scene where the decision was made to evacuate the building. The residents spent the night with relatives or in hotels, reported Civil Protection.

Gold in the rubbish WHERE there’s muck, there’s brass. In the case of the C a s a re s rubbish plant €35,000 a year of it. This is the value of coins and jewellery that the waste disposal facility finds annually. It is one of only four plants in the country that has machinery capable of sorting valuables out of the 350,000 tons of waste it processes each year. Plant management says they find €20,000 worth of coins - mostly 10 cent pieces - and another €15,000 of jewellery that has been thrown out with the rubbish. All the valuables found go through a rigorous cleaning process. The coins are sent to the Bank of Spain. Any that are too damaged are destroyed and then the bank credits the value of the rest back to the company. Jewellery is valued by experts and put on to a computerised register that will soon be available on a website. A brief description will be given.

Cleared of ex’s murder



FOUR people were injured in a head on smash on the A-343 in Pizarra, with two men aged 49 and 59 and two women aged 27 and 33 taken to hospital, according to emergency services. The accident happened at the junction with the A-7077.


Climate strike

THE PP political party has called for ‘unsafe’ playgrounds in Torremolinos to be closed until damaged and dangerous rides and fences are repaired, saying that there have been several accidents involving children and that it is irresponsible to allow them to still be used.

Rich town BENAHAVIS is the richest town in Malaga Province in terms of income, with an average of €30,429 a head, according to data from the tax man. Second is Rincon de la Victoria (€28,33), then Malaga City and Marbella (both €25,674).

Four hurt

No play



THE ex-husband of Lucia Garrido, whose body was found floating in the swimming pool of her Alhaurin de la Torre home in 2008, together with three co-defendants including two former Guardia Civil officers, has been cleared of her murder by a Malaga jury.

AROUND 3,000 young people took part in the World Climate Strike in Malaga last Friday. They gathered in the Plaza de la Constitucion for a march as part of the action called by Swedish activist Greta Thunberg that was taking place in more than 150 countries.



CAPTIVATING: Morning mist rolls through the El Tajo Gorge in Ronda.

STUNNING RONDA Photographer Jordan Hammond has beautifully captured the beauty of Mother Nature against the spectacular Ronda backdrop. MORNING mist lies at the bottom of the El Tajo gorge that carves its way through the Spanish town, carrying the waters of the Rio Guadalevin, with the Puente Nuevo bridge spanning the 100m chasm below. Ronda sits in the Malaga Province around 40 minutes north of Marbella, sandwiched between the Sierra de Grazalema and the Sierra de las Nievas, both UNESCO biosphere reserves.

Originating from Moorish rule, the El Tajo Gorge separates the 15th century ‘new town’ and the Moorish ‘old town.’ At the heart of the old town sits the Plaza del Toros, a beautiful reminder of the town’s rich bullfighting history where once a year, Feria Goyesca celebrates the age old tradition. Across the bridge sits a myriad of cobbled streets and stunning town man-

sions still belonging to the town’s dignitaries, a highlight of which is the Palacio Mondragón. Modernised in part during the 1960s, it still contains working vestiges of the miniature water gardens dating from its time as a Moorish Palace. The pedestrianised ‘high street’ contains everything that both locals and tourists could ask for, with a mix of modern amenities mixed with traditional craft shops and local wares.

Bank drama

Gangster caught

THE streets of Estepona resembled a police thriller when a bank robbery was foiled. At around 2.05pm last Thursday, National Police were alerted to an attempted robbery with violence at a branch of La Caixa located on Avenida de Andalucia. Police rapidly deployed a large group of armed officers who surrounded the bank with weapons drawn. Once surrounded, the bank manager started to mediate between the police officers and the robbers. In videos recorded by passers-by the manager can be seen re-entering the premises. Shortly afterwards two men come out and lay on the floor, following police orders. At that moment, several policemen take charge of the robbers, while others entered the bank to make sure none were hiding inside. According to sources, the two men entered the branch dressed as delivery messengers, minutes before closing.

A MAN linked to one of the most active organised crime groups in Ceuta has been arrested in Puerto Banus. He is the brother of the leader of a network that was engaged in trafficking hashish and was involved in a vicious turf war for control of the enclave’s criminal underground. Police allege the arrested man was in charge of directing the war and ordered attacks and extortion on his brother’s gang’s rivals. He is wanted by two courts in Ceuta and had a warrant for arrest and detention in force against him. An investigation had begun after several violent incidents in Ceuta, with police identifying the two brothers as allegedly behind the enclave’s drugs trade. Last August, police arrested three members of the organisation in Casares, including the brother of the now arrested man who, after being sentenced to prison, had been on the run.

Beer trouble SPAN ISH troops who were snapped having a beer in full uniform with automatic weapons slung at their sides are being investigated. The Ronda-based Spanish Legionnaires are not in trouble for displaying their automatic rifles at a roadside cafe, but rather for having a beer while in uniform. The group was photographed drinking beers at a Catalan bar, which led to a social media storm

and Catalan politicians weighing in about the display of firearms. The troops were returning to Ronda after an exercise in France. Normally their weapons would have been left on the bus under guard. But it has been reported that in this instance it was decided the soldiers would keep their weapons which were not loaded with them, as the buses had to move for refuelling.

Doctor intimidation THERE has been another case of an emergency room doctor being threatened and intimidated. In the latest of a series of incidents the doctor was only saved from being physically assaulted at Malaga’s Hospital Clinical by the rapid action of a security guard. The health worker has reported the incident, which involved a psychiatric patient, to hospital authorities and the National Police. Health workers’ union CSIF has expressed its concern about the high rate of aggressive incidents against public

health workers in Malaga. It has denounced a lack of adequate facilities, arguing that “these deficiencies, coupled with a chronic lack of staff in the emergency room, complicate actions that can be taken in violent situations such as that experienced this Monday.” In a statement the union added that the health ser vice should adapt its Plan of Aggressions to take into account individual health centre architecture, so that workers can be quickly evacuated to a place of safety when needed.


Future in doubt THE future of Malaga football club is in doubt as it sits under the burden of a €6 million debt. Now it has emerged that the club’s owner, Qatari Sheikh Abdullah Al-Thani, is supposed to take home an annual salary of €1.4 million. He is currently owed €4.35 million, with club sources indicating that a partial write-off of this ‘credit’ would help the club considerably. Malaga CF’s legal representative Joaquín Jofre and sporting director José Luis Caminero held a press conference to outline the outcome of meetings held to help secure the club’s future. “If we don’t do anything, yes [it could happen]. But that would be an absurd thing to do. We are making changes so that the club survives but there

is still danger, like in any business,” explained Jofre. La Liga chiefs met prior in Madrid to discuss possible outcomes of the team’s current situation, including restructuring of team staff, selling of players and changes in commercial revenue. Income is still less than expenditure, and the financial strain could lead to disaster by

as soon as January 2020. A meeting was also held by Malaga mayor Francisco de la Torre and attended by video call by La Liga chief Javier Tebas in Malaga Town Hall to further discuss solutions. During the meeting, both parties expressed their unwavering support for the club and committed to better monitoring of the club’s activities.

Gentlemen riders GENTLEMEN bikers were seen up and down the Costa del Sol on Sunday. They were taking part in the world’s largest charitable motorcycle event for owners of classic and vintage styled bikes. Distinguished gentlefolk in hundreds of cities worldwide donned their cravats, pressed their tweed and sat astride their classic and vintage styled motorcycles to raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer and men’s mental health. This year’s Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride brought together over 120,000 well dressed gentlefolk in 700+ cities on stunning motorcycles across 110+ countries. The Costa del Sol event departed from Plaza de la Marina in Malaga and cruised through towns such as Torremolinos and Benalmadena Costa.

GENTLEMEN: Donned their cravats. The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride was founded in Sydney, Australia by Mark Hawwa. That first ride in 2012 brought together over 2,500 riders across 64 cities. The success of the event sparked the idea to use the event as a platform to support a worthy cause.

EWN takes the jump for Age Concern’s 3rd annual challenge IN the past the charity has completed a sponsored Skydive from 15,000 feet - the highest possible without oxygen - and last year flew across the Longest Zipline in Europe at 80 k/ph. That was from Spain to Portugal. This week and closer to home the charity and volunteers abseiled down the iconic Sunset Beach Hotel in Benalmadena. Obvious question. Why would normally sane people do something like this? Simply to raise much needed funds and public awareness for a charity that provides advice, help, support and friendship to the older English-speaking communities in Fuengirola, Mijas and Benalmadena.

Loneliness and isolation are a burden that a lot of older people accept as a normal part of the ageing process. Age Concern does not believe that and with many years of life left, want to make sure that its clients live every minute to the fullest. Yesterday (Wednesday) saw a total of 17 ‘brave fools’ go to the very top of the Hotel and slowly inch their way down. The atmosphere was charged with tension (or possibly fear) as it took two hours to bring everyone down safely. The EWN team, led by Steven Euesden who is clearly a hands-on Director, were some of the first ‘Challengers’ to rope down the building and are already looking forward to next year’s challenge. Other participants included representatives from Age Concern Fuengirola, Mijas and Benalmadena, U3A (University of the 3rd Age) and a number of sponsored private individuals. Thanks to the organisation of Tuur Canyoning and their Director Jose Moreno, and the attention to detail from Tommy Marshall on behalf of Sunset Beach, this event was a great success.

Lugo has similar prices to Jaén, which offers the cheapest rented homes in Andalucia. This data comes from the Ministr y of Public Works which, for the first time, has calculated the figures by looking at the bonds that landlords deposit with the administrations, instead of prices on rental portals.

At the forefront MALAGA University’s campus is at the forefront in trials for a world-leading electric bus system. Buses on the 2.5-kilometre, 12minute, route, which carries 150,000 passengers a year, can now give their batteries a top-up at the final stop. Metal contacts lower from the bus onto recharging points set into the tarmac giving a quick charge of between two and five minutes, meaning the timetable is not disrupted. It means the bus can stay on the roa d longe r a nd a ls o re duc e s the amount of batteries it needs to carry, leading to cost and efficiency savings. The system is safe for other road users, with the mechanism only coming into operation when the bus is halted in the correct place. Wireless technology detects the contacts being lowered and a protective mesh rises to cover the operation. Miguel Ruiz, manager of the EMT said electric buses are the future, but the technological challenges had to

Threat to homes plan by Dilip Kuner A DECREE regularising the situation of up to 60,000 homes in Malaga Province has run into opposition. Many people welcome the move that will end the uncertainty faced by the homes’ owners, but environmental group Gena-Ecologistas in Action has criticised what it calls an amnesty for properties that were built on non-building land. They are now studying the Junta de Andalucia regional government decree to see if it contravenes other laws in order to be able to appeal against it. The decree could be applicable to 327,583 dwellings built throughout Andalucia on land not zoned for housing. Owners of these houses will have to take the first step and ask their local council to abide by this regulation. Houses built in protected areas such as national parks, within 100 metres of coastline or where demolition orders have been confirmed by the courts are not covered by the decree. But it is hoped that it will remove the fear of demolition for the vast majority of the properties affected. In the past several houses have been knocked

The compensation process can take years to get through the courts. The regulations allow for groups of houses to become urbanisations without

being on the official urban development plans (PGOU). Up until now this was not possible and it could take up to nine years to be included. Instead they will be able to be included on a special development plan, which takes about 20 months. This will allow them to access basic services such as electricity and water supplies.

Water warning A WARNING has gone out to beware fake water inspectors. Hidralia, the company that manages the supply network in Estepona is alerting townspeople and residents further afield on the Costa del Sol, saying its workers do not enter people’s homes, either to repair leaks or make inspections. But it has had reports of people wearing similar clothing approaching householders. “These people try to access the interior of the house under the pretext of repairing a water leak and checking the pipes,” warned

Hidralia in a statement. It added that possible internal leaks are detected by the difference between meter readings. If there is higher than normal consumption, the company notifies households via a letter. The statement added that internal leaks are the responsibility of the owners, not Hidralia, which is why they do not enter the premises. People should not let ‘water inspectors’ into their homes and should notify police, the statement concluded.

Death of a worker THE CCOO and UGT trade unions held a rally in Malaga after the death of a worker. A man died after falling seven metres from a roof in Campillos’ industrial estate near the A384 road, according to the Emergency Service 112. The coordinating centre sent Guardia Civil, Local Police, and ambulance as well as alerting the Centre for the Prevention of Risks at Work and the Labour Inspectorate, as it appeared to be a work accident. The Guardia Civil confirmed to 112 that the man died in the incident, the causes of which are being investigated. It is thought he may have fallen through a sky light and then hit his head on machinery within the industrial unit. The unions called for a demonstration last Thursday to show their ‘repulsion’ at the death of a worker and called for better safety measures.

Confidence challenge dropped THREATS of a vote of no-confidence to kick Boris Johnson out of office has been dropped. Labour chiefs have been in talks with other opposition groups over a plan to put an interim Prime Minister in place to guarantee an extension to the Brexit negotiations in the event of no-deal. Despite cross party-unity on a determination to block a no-deal Brexit, the parties failed to reach agreement on a no-confidence vote. The possibility remains on the table but Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said the move would come only when oppo-

ELECTION: Parliament and Brexit on a knife edge.

Deal hopes ‘non-starter’

PLANS leaked this week that Brexit negotiators hoped would be a deal clincher have been rejected as a ‘non-starter.’ The proposals to break the Irish backstop deadlock were to be announced after the Tory Party Conference but have been revealed by the Irish state broadcaster RTE. Brexit secretary Stephen Barclay met with Brussels’ chief negotiator Michel Barnier last Friday and afterwards said the

Government was ‘exploring’ the extent of the political will in Brussels to make an agreement. The Irish backstop intended to avoid a hard border between Northern Ireland and the Republic has already been rejected three times by Parliament. Proposals now being put forward include introducing customs clearance zones which have been flatly rejected by the Ireland’s Deputy Prime Minister Simon Coveney as a ‘non-starter.’

sition groups were sure to win. Downing Street tried to have Parliament sent into recess during this week’s Conservative Party Conference in Manchester but the bid failed. A no-confidence vote would have forced the Tories to abandon their conference and return to Westminster to support their leader. The Prime Minister last week goaded the opposition to call a no-confidence vote after judges declared his suspension of Parliament in the run up to the Brexit deadline as unlawful. Parliament was swiftly recalled, but Boris Johnson was unapologetic and invited the opposition to put the question to the public with a vote of noconfidence and a General Election. The opposition see forcing Boris Johnson out of office as the only way to guarantee that legislation passed in Parliament to prevent a no-deal Brexit will be honoured. The Prime Minister has confirmed that he will never ask for an extension to the deadline and promised that the UK will walk away from Europe on October 31 with or without a deal.

Brexit demo DEMONSTRATORS draped in European flags greeted Tory conference delegates in Manchester. Police were preparing for tens of thousands to attend rallies in the city. The theme of the party conference is ‘Get Brexit done.’

Pain will pass MICHAEL GOVE has told the party faithful that new trade tariffs, border checks and potential issues for UK citizens abroad would bring challenges following the UK’s exit from Europe. He predicted that, while these difficulties will pass: “The damage to our democracy in not getting Brexit done would endure, and resound, for much longer.”

Fake hams for sale CONSUMERS’ association Facua has filed a complaint against a food distributor saying it is passing off Polish ham as Spanish. It says that Comapa is selling the Polish product under the brand Trevedul, seeking to relate it to the town of Trevelez in Granada, which is famous for its hams. The brand is widely distributed in Malaga Province supermarkets. The complaint, filed with the Directorate General of Consumer Affairs of the Community of Madrid, also calls for penalties proportionate to the size of the ‘fraud’ and illicit profits obtained. Facua points out that on the labelling of the hams marketed under the Trevedul brand the following information appears: ‘Natural ham: Sierra Nevada,’ ‘Cured white ham bodega: Cured ham from Granada Trevedul’ and ‘Cured white ham reserva: Cured ham reservaTrevedul.’ On the ham itself, however, the registration number of the slaughterhouse where the animal from which the product came was slaughtered is printed, beginning with PL corresponding to the international code that identifies Poland. The association indicates that the labelling of these products can cause the

consumer to buy them under the mistaken belief that the origin of the ham and its curing are in the town of Trevelez, when it really is not. Moreover, the meat from that area has a protected geographical indication which Trevedul hams do not have. According to El Economista, Comapa has finally decided to withdraw this brand

from the market. Facua had denounced Comapa last March for selling hams also from Poland under the brand name Jamones Sierra Alpujarra, incorrectly identifying this product as originating in the Granada region. The company has also eliminated this brand.

Lack of job creation

CRUISE SHIP: The couple were arrested after being found with cocaine in their suitcases.

Brit pensioners get eight years ROGER CLARKE, 72, and wife, 71, from Kent, were arrested in December of last year after Portuguese authorities found cocaine in their suitcases while their cruise ship MC Marco Polo was docked in Lisbon. The arrests came after a tip-off from British authorities. The couple protested their innocence last Tuesday as they went on trial after nine months in separate remand prisons in the Portuguese capital insisting they had no idea the cases had drugs inside. That

they were taking them back to the UK for a friend called Lee who had promised to pay them £800 for helping with his ‘exotic fruit’ business. Their innocence has crumbled in the light of justice and Clarke’s whispered comment to his wife on hearing the eight-year sentence ‘Jesus Christ! I wasn’t expecting more than four’ seems to suggest that the Clarkes had full knowledge of what was inside the cases and had even calculated their own sentences. The couple’s previous history

with the law hasn’t aided in their favour either. Both had previously been convicted of a similar crime in Norway. Mr Clarke confirmed in court they had both served prison sentences in Norway after being convicted in 2010 for trafficking 240 kilos of cannabis resin, claiming he had done a first drugs run to clear debts and was made to do more with his wife as cover after being threatened with violence by gangster paymasters if he stopped. Roger, who was born Roger Button changed his surname to Clarke

after completing the Norwegian sentence. The expat couple lied to friends in Guardamar del Segura near Alicante where they lived and were the ‘life and soul of local bars’ and members of a golf club, by telling they had served time in prison for cigarette smuggling. Lead judge Margarida Alves told the couple: “We are totally convinced you knew the contents of these four cases. You did what you did not because you are drug consumers, but because you wanted to make an easy profit.”

THE number of jobs created in Spain last month is at its lowest since 2013. Although overall new employment figures rose by 3,224 since August, the figure sits well below previous years and is only just higher than in 2013 when the country was in a crippling recession. In total, registered unemployment rose by 13,907 compared to this time last year, bringing the total recorded unemployed in the country to 3,079,711. And figures released by the Ministry of Labour also confirm that the economy is slowing down. The number of individuals signed up for social security has grown by 460,739 people, 2.44 per cent more than 2018. Although this seems a strong increase, the figures are still the lowest they have been in six years in terms of new candidates. Data also showed that in total there are 19.32 million social security contributors in the country.

Data from the Ministry of Tourism shows that hotels in the region dealt with a total of 7.6 million overnight stays in the month, which is 5 per cent more than in August 2018. There was an increase in the number of guests of 4.4 per cent to exceed 2.3 million for the first time. The figures were revealed by vice president of the Junta de Andalucia and Minister of Tourism, Regenera-

tion, Justice and Local Government, Juan Marín, at a meeting convened to assess

the impact of the bankruptcy of Thomas Cook. Marin highlighted August as “a historic month for tourism in Andalucia. The data has exceeded our most optimistic forecasts and we are on track to close 2019 as a year in which we will further bolster the strength of our destination.” Regarding Thomas Cook, Marin said: “The impact on the region is going to be much smaller than other

Donating blood 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. In Spain, Blood Components and Services are provided by 17 Regional Blood Transfusion Services. Despite their autonomous operations management, every regional service is fully incorporated into a unique and common Public National Health System, supplying a cohesive blood transfusion care to all citizens, residents, and visitors in Spain based on 100 per cent voluntary and non-remunerated blood donation. For more general information, visit Anyone who has lived continuously in the UK between 1980 and 1996 (a minimum of one year) will not be able to donate blood in Spain due to the risk of transmitting mad cow disease. Similarly, there are restrictions if you have received a blood transfer in the UK. However, each region may have different rules about donation. Call the donation helpline on 935 573 500. Alternatively, visit to find out if you are eligible. If you are eligible, you can give blood at your local hospital, or via the Spanish Red Cross (Cruz Roja) at one of their clinics, or in one of their mobile units. You can check dates and locations by visiting A donor card is not necessary to give blood. On the first visit you will have to provide DNI, NIE, passport or a driving licence. If you are already registered in the Blood Bank, you only need a donor card or a document with your name and surname. The process of blood donation takes just 10 minutes in which 450 ml are collected (equating to 10 per cent of the total blood circulation of an adult person). Despite huge technological advances, the only way for hospitals to obtain blood is through the generosity of the public. The blood is carefully screened for disease to make sure it is safe. After a tattoo, you must wait four months to be eligible to donate. After surgery, the exclusion period will depend on the type of intervention. After minor surgical procedures, you cannot donate blood for seven days or until you are fully recovered. After undergoing major surgery, you will not be able to donate blood for four months. The rarest blood type is AB, present in 1 per cent of Caucasians, according to research by the America Red Cross. Blood transfusions are carried out daily in Spanish hospitals with more than 6,200 patients being given them, of whom almost a quarter are fighting cancer and a similar figure receiving transfusions during or after surgery. Spain has around two million donors in total, but needs closer to four million. This information is for guidance only, and should not be taken as legal advice. If in any doubt, seek professional help.

Brutally beaten A 14-YEAR-OLD girl was left with a broken nose and bruising after teenagers from the same school in the San Blas district of Madrid beat her up at the entrance, Spanish media reported. A video, which according to El Mundo was posted on social media, showed the teenager pushed to the floor and set upon by another girl, who punched her several times in the face, while a group of fellow pupils formed a circle around them. The attack victim later needed hospital treatment for her injuries. Two weeks earlier another group of a dozen or more students tried to attack the same girl, but on that occasion her parents stepped in to defend her, Spanish press said.

Ill-treated own mother COMPLAINT: Was filed with National Police.

A 38-YEAR-OLD woman in Malaga has been arrested for allegedly illtreating her dependent septuagenarian mother. Her husband, 40, has also been arrested for his alleged involvement. According to the National Police, another daughter of the victim filed a complaint claim-

ing that her mother was suffering from neglect, as well as psychological ill-treatment by her sister and her husband who were the woman’s carers. Police say the victim was subjected to threats and insults, in addition to living in circumstances of neglect, lack of hygiene and social isolation. In their view the detainees ‘in-

tended to have absolute control over the victim’s income.’ Officers also discovered that on several occasions health workers who visited the house to treat the victim found they were denied entry. For this reason, the Municipal Social Services have also prepared a report on the woman’s situation.

Scammer lacks attention

ATOCHA STATION: Where the clueless con artist was outsmarted by a group of tourists.

A CON artist got more than he bargained for when he tried to scam a free ticket from tourists at Atocha station in the heart of Madrid. A local man overheard the conversation in which the scammer tried to explain to a group of tourists that he had lost his ticket and wallet and needed money to get back to Valladolid (Castilla y León). Suspicious of the man’s motives, the tourists questioned him on which river runs through the centre of Valladolid, to which he

replied, the Ebro. The actual river that runs through the town is the Pisuerga, not the Ebro. The tourists also pointed out that the AVE train to Valladolid doesn’t leave from Atocha but in fact from the Chamartin station across town. The commuter, who witnessed the interaction, wrote of his experience in a Twitter post under the username @Gauginaepicuro, adding: ‘And that, kids, is why you should pay attention to geography at school.’

TOO SLOW: Police can’t keep up with people smugglers.

Fast ferry to Spain by Dilip Kuner POLICE have so far been unable to catch a speed launch that would appear to have set up a ferry service for illegal immigrants. National Police suspect it has brought hundreds of people to beaches in Estepona and Sotogrande. It is so powerful it can make the crossing in just 30 minutes. The price of a ticket is between €3,000 and €4,000. National Police have spotted it crossing the Strait of Gibraltar and even laid in wait for it at Sotogrande. On spotting police it simply sped

off and disembarked its cargo of migrants at Estepona before heading back to North Africa. Police could not keep up with it. The police say that the boat, “like so many others of that type used by drug traffickers,” was probably acquired by the criminal organisation in Galicia, where there are several companies that manufacture them. In October 2018, the government approved a royal decree banning these so-called ‘narcolanchas’ from the Spanish coast after verifying that the mafias were using them not only for the transport of drugs, but also for the illicit trafficking of people.

Man dies on pilgrimage A YOUNG Irish man reportedly died tragically following a swimming accident in Spain. The incident is believed to have occurred last Thursday evening in a busy tourist resort in the north of the country. It has been reported that the young victim, believed to be in his 20’s, had just set out to undertake the Camino walking pilgrimage across France and Spain to Santiago de Compostela with a group of friends when the tragedy took place. The precise details of the accident have not yet been disclosed, but the young man reportedly went for a swim following a long day of walking under the harsh Spanish sun. It seems that the young victim got into difficulty while in the water and was later discovered in an unresponsive state before being brought to shore. Despite efforts to resuscitate the young man, he was tragically pronounced dead a short time later. His remains have been transferred to a local hospital ahead of a post-mortem examination due to be carried out by a Spanish coroner. The man is from Cork but also has ties in Kerry.

TV let off the hook FRAN CO’S grandchildren cannot sue over alleged slurs on their grandfather’s reputation, a judge ruled. Gonzalo Salgado, an investigating judge in Alcobendas (Madrid), said the plaintiffs had no legitimate grounds for objecting to Los papeles secretos de Franco (Franco’s secret papers), a documentary shown on the La Sexta television channel last November. They hoped to sue the Galician investigator Carlos Babio, whose 22 years of research into Franco’s fortune was to back the government’s claim that Franco’s summer residence Pazo de Meiras was state property. Writer Mariano Sanchez Soler, the director general of

Atresmedia Television, Javier Bardaji, several television journalists and the documentary’s director also faced prosecution. The seven grandchildren claimed that the programme insulted the late dictator Francisco Franco and repeated ‘untrue affirmations’ that ‘defamed and discredited’ them. ‘On a €95,000 salary, how could he leave more than €500,000?’ the programme asked, although the judge pointed out that Franco’s estate went to his widow and only daughter, not to them. The question was generic, said Salgado concluding that the family was not entitled to prosecute as they were not ‘directly offended’ by the ‘cited offences.’

Benalmádena NEWS Don’t mention the war Cast off LAST weekend saw the first sports fishing tournament take place on the Fuente de la Salud Beach which was promoted by the local Sport Fishing club and the Andalucian Federation of Sport Fishing with the support of the council and the marina. This was all about sustainable fishing and respect for the sea, but was also an enjoyable challenge for those 50 plus anglers

who took part. There was a €20 registration fee and as a novel extra charge, each participant was asked to bring one kilo of non-perishable food which could then be passed to a local charity assisting those in need. It is hoped that this will become an annual event which will attract more fishermen from local towns and even some from further away.

A rare Adoptive Son declared A LARGE audience of friends and well-wishers turned up at a memorial handball tournament at Maravillas College held in honour of the late president of the local handball association who died last April. A few days later, the mayor of Benalmadena Victor Navas announced that for the first time in many years, the town would name a new Adoptive Son of Benalmadena and this honour was to be bestowed upon Carlos Hernández. Mr Hernández moved to the town from Madrid in 1973 to become a teacher at the Mar-

avillas School and when in 1975, it ran into financial difficulty, he and a number of colleagues remained true to their students and helped to make the college a success which is the envy of many other municipalities. He then went on to found the Sports Association Maravillas Benalmadena which promotes the sport of handball and has seen many successes during its 25 years of existence. The decision to grant this title to Carlos Hernández was carried unanimously in the Council Chamber and his passion for the school, education and sports will be greatly missed.

Dog kills owner A MAN died after he was attacked by one of his own dogs in Coslada in Madrid on Sunday. The 47-year-old was at home when the animal, a Rottweiler, leapt on him and bit him in the face and thorax, Spanish media reported. The victim, who reportedly had three guard dogs, was at his property located on an industrial estate with family members

when the attack took place. A call to 112 alerted the emergency services to the incident. When the medical team arrived at the scene they could only confirm the man’s death. As well as the Rottweiler which caused the injuries the man had two other dogs. The Coslada Local Police Canine Unit reportedly transferred all three animals to an animal protection centre.

THE woman found guilty of murdering eight-year-old Gabriel Cruz has been given life. On Monday the Almeria Provincial Court sentenced Ana Julia Quesada to a maximum permanent reviewable prison sentence for killing Gabriel in Cabo de Gata in Almeria in February last year with the aggravating circumstance of a family relationship with the little boy. Quesada is the first women to be sentenced to serving life with a possibility of parole after a minimum fixed term since the punishment was introduced into Spanish Law in 2015. The court also sentenced the 45-year-old Domini-

FATAL: The Rottweiler reportedly bit the 47-year-old on the face and thorax.

Life for child killer can to three years behind bars for psychological injuries to Gabriel’s father Angel Cruz, with whom she was in a relationship at the time of the youngster’s death, and two years and nine months for psychological injuries to his mother Patricia Ramirez. In addition, the sentence orders Quesada to pay

€250,000 to each parent in moral damages and bans her from living in or visiting Nijar or the parents’ homes for 30 years and from going within 500 metres of either Angel or Patricia. She will also have to pay the just over €200,000 cost to the state of the 12-day search operation launched to find the little lad following his disappearance from close to his grandmother’s house in Las Hortichuelas. Last month a jury unanimously decided Quesada was guilty of ‘voluntarily taking the life’ of Gabriel, ‘unexpectedly and without the possibility of the minor defending himself or reacting’ following a nineday trial and more than 24 hours of deliberations.

Cats and Dogs WORRIED about the continuing proliferation of stray cats and dogs within the municipality, a number of interested parties have got together to launch a campaign of sterilisation. With the assistance of promotion by local radio and TV, 11 veterinary clinics have so far agreed to offer to sterilise people’s pets at very affordable prices and the campaign is supported by the council. Whilst the concept is very laudatory, there appear to be some inherent problems as firstly only residents who register at the town hall can take advantage of this initiative and secondly someone who is sufficiently civic minded enough to have their animal sterilised is hardly likely to have abandoned them anyway.

Doctor honoured IT was 20 years ago that Dr Sladana Obradovic decided to settle in Mijas and help look after local residents who were ill. As a gesture of thanks to this dedicated and hard-working doctor, the council has made her an Adoptive Daughter of Mijas and she was formally

presented with this honour at a recent reception at the town hall. The doctor said that this was one of the most important days of her life, adding that she has made many true friends rather than just having a normal doctor-patient relationship here in Mijas.

More parking spaces A DECISION has been made to increase public parking in San Pedro by the creation of an open air car park situated in Calle Juan Illescas Pavรณn in Fuente Nueva. An area of some 6,300 square metres has been identified by the Marbella Council and it is estimated that up to 200 cars could be accommodated in what will initially be a provisional parking area for residents. It is intended to use recycled asphalt recovered from another area in order to reduce costs and create less dust whilst at the same time, work will be undertaken to install better drainage for when it rains as well as new LED lights and other necessary improvements to the area. All of this is subject to authorisation from the Department of Urban Planning, but having canvassed local residents and undertaken similar work in other larger urbanisations which had insufficient parking, the council expects this proposal to be approved and work started as quickly as possible. Parking generally in San Pedro is a problem, so this additional site will be welcome.

AURELIA AURITA: Can sting but are not life threatening. ALTHOUGH the time for swimming in the sea is passing by, be careful as jellyfish have been spotted at the beach in Guadalmina Baja. One

KNOWN as Supervic, Victor Conesa f ro m M a r b e l l a i s considered to be one of the best Spanish Muay Thai (Thai Boxing) fighters around. This Saturday he will be fighting against Prince Junior in his home of Luxembourg for the WBC Intercontinental title at 63.5kg. This will be a change of continent for Supervic as he has spent several years boxing in Thailand where he has steadily risen up

the local ranks, but he is now looking to make a name for himself on the more lucrative European and then possibly American stages. Unlike the more traditional boxing, exponents of Muay Thai can have several hundreds of bouts across their careers and Victor not only wants to become a champion in his own right, but also wants to help other more junior fighters to achieve their potential.

New hotel wanted

FOR years a number of people in San Pedro Alcantara have objected to being what they see as a dormitory town of Marbella and they regularly vote in San Pedro councillors at local elections as they want increased autonomy. Now they are demanding that the Marbella Council should allow a proposal to be put forward with the intention of obtaining approval for a new hotel complex in the town which is backed by a petition containing almost 3,000 signatures. Benahavis is also looking to split from Marbella and this is probably more feasible as that town does have its own elected council but does also have to answer to Marbella.



LOCAL POLICE: Were presented with medals for their work.

Recognising Local Police THE mayor, Ángeles Muñoz, met with members of the Local Police on their Patron Saint’s feast day in order to congratulate them on their work and to present medals. She highlighted the importance of this local force and confirmed the council’s commitment to ensuring that adequate funding would be available in order to allow them to undertake their work. Not only will funding be made to ensure their good working conditions, but the council will always bear in mind their need for security and protection from criminals and members of the general public as they under-

take their important work. Additional legal training will be given thanks to a new agreement with the Bar Association of Malaga and facilities will be upgraded with the launch of the Emergency Coordination Centre, a new control and command room which will be equipped with the latest technological equipment in order to reduce response times. The opening of the SATE office (Foreign Tourist Assistance Service), as well as the introduction of the first phase of the video surveillance system will help to make the streets in the urban centres of Marbella and San Pedro Alcantara even safer.

A SPANISH man died following a collision with a Gibraltar Customs vessel in the waters off Eastern Beach on Monday night. The Chief Minister has sent his condolences to the family of the deceased man and expressed his sympathy to the mayor of La Linea. He has promised that a full investigation into the relevant circumstances will start immediately and he has also expressed his concerns about the welfare of the Customs officers involved in the incident, especially that of the officer who bravely dived into the sea to attempt a rescue. As the matter is now in the hands of the coroner, it is considered sub judice so neither Government nor HM Customs will be able to make any public comments about the circumstances of the accident or the reason for the loss of life of the individual.

Loggerhead turtle released

Axarquia Day at Tivoli World

MURCIA has welcomed two baby loggerhead turtles, the first to be born in the region in more than a century. The turtles have only a one in a 1,000 chance of surviving into adulthood in the wild. The last known loggerhead turtle eggs to have been found on a beach in the region were in the late 19th century. But last week, two of 69 eggs buried in the sand at Cala Arturo hatched in the regional park of Calblanque off the coast line of Cartagena. The eggs, buried on July 28, have carefully been looked after by the El Valle rescue centre with the hope that 10-12 more eggs could soon hatch. A 35-year-old female released into the wild is reportedly ready to ovulate and the agency hopes she will travel back to her birthplace to lay eggs.

THE amusement park Tivoli World in Benalmadena celebrated Day of Axarquia on Saturday. The event was officially opened by the president of the Mancomunidad de Municipios of Axarquia, José Juan Jiménez along with fellow councillors and the coordinator of Tivoli World, José Luis Guzmán. “From the institution we would like to thank the people in charge of Tivoli World who have thought of our region to give promotion and to pay tribute to each of its people,” thanked Jimenez. “With the celebration of the Day of the Costa del Tropical Axarquia we can show our tourist potential, but also allow a day of coexistence between many families from different villages in the region,” he continued. For the celebration, the park opened its doors free of charge to anyone with a residency card of Axarquia, or those who collected an invitation from town halls, coastal tourism offices or in the APTA office. The pass also meant that Axarquian tourists did not have to queue, using a special entrance to access the rides and attractions. Local businesses were also invited to set up tents to promote their wares to anyone visiting the park as well as animations and live performances that were held throughout the day.

RELEASED: The female loggerhead turtle is ready to complete her journey back to her homeplace to continue her life in the wild.


CLEANING UP: Young people at the forefront of the fight to save the sea.

Beach cleaning

LAST Saturday a large number of people arrived at the San Francisco beach, for a day of shoreline cleaning supported by the Fuengirola Council. The intention was not only to remove the waste that manages to make its way onto the beach, but also to highlight the importance of keeping the beaches in good condition and promoting cycling. The Spanish Institute of Oceanography had a stand on the beach and gave a talk to those present about the state of the Mediterranean and international waters. The hope is that as public awareness increases, so over a period of time, Fuengirola will be able to boast that visitors may enjoy 100 per cent sustainable beaches. As can be seen in the accompanying photograph, the majority of those taking part were youngsters and it is they who will be experiencing climate change and environmental difficulties in the future. Later next month, there will be a screening in 11 towns and cities of a new film by the group Fridays for another Future of a documentary about sustainability and environmental awareness. It is aimed mainly at schoolchildren and students and this is a Canadian film Youth Unstoppable which highlights the activities taken by young people around the world who are leading the fight against climate emergency in order to save the planet and their own futures.



Charity gift

Sport by the sea

CANCER charities have benefited from a €1,000 donation from the fundraising group Giving4Giving. The group raised the funds at an event at the Brew Rock bar in Albir. The money was presented to Lisa Griffin the bar owner who organised the benefit night. Giving4Giving has now donated €139,000 to charity with two more donations to follow this month. Giving4Giving is seeking volunteers and donations for all their shops and provide a pick-up service for larger goods. Anyone able to help should contact Gary on 603 137 697.

SPORTS enthusiasts in Adra now have brand new facilities right by the sea. The local council has opened up the El Palmeral multi sports court next to the municipal indoor swimming pool, offering the public what Mayor Manuel Cortes said was somewhere for children and adults to practise something ‘as healthy and fun’ as football, basketball and more. Financed by local authority and European funds, the €62,000 facilities are, the council said, part of a policy to make sport readily available to residents and to revitalise public areas. Speaking at the official inauguration of the court last week, Cortes explained it is not just multi-sport, but also multi-purpose: one of the sides can be taken up so it can also serve as a stage for cultural events. “These kinds of multi-functional public spaces generate social integration between local residents,” the mayor commented.

BENEFIT: Lisa Griffin received a donation from G4G volunteer Gary James.

RED CARPET: The charity event hosted by Real Estates United on behalf of the JoyRon Foundation was a huge success.

A roaring success

THE Red Carpet event on the stunning rooftop of the OD Port Portals Hotel on behalf of the JoyRon Foundation was a huge success on Friday evening. Each year local residents pull out their finest outfits and head to the fabulous charity event held by Real Estates United, a platform that is designed for real estate agents and partners to collaborate in Mallorca. The night kicked off with a photo call by Celebrity Mallorca Magazine with the glamorous dancers from Tito’s Mallorca with music by the saxophonist Adrian Sanso Ali. Entertainment was provided by the pole dancers from Louisa Pole’s Pole Fitness andCharley Hamblyn serenaded the crowds with her amazing vocal talents. The music continued into the night with another performance by Pole Fitness before an auction for a fabulous prize provided by the Ella Project, a $10,000 marketing package with Huffpost, Forbes and other high-end marketing platforms. The event ended with a raffle hosted by Ron Hawes and Euro Weekly’s very own Ben Mulvey with 34 prizes from a range of local sponsors. Every penny of the €7,945 raised at the event will go to the JoyRon Foundation, a charity with the sole aim of helping children in need in the Baleares, by raising funds, that will be applied to bring levels of joy, comfort and essential support to the children.

MULTIPURPOSE: The mayor explained the facilities can be used for different sports and cultural events.

14th Edition 2nd – 6th October 2019

Red carpet for Chinese film IN the summer of 2017, two Chinese filmmakers started a journey filming only on mo­ bile phones, and travelled through 16 countries from Cannes to Damascus. Their aim was to docu­ ment the situation of refugees in the ‘post­refugee era’ as well as present the truth about the current situ­ ation in Syria. The outcome was The Bridge to Paradise, a docu­ mentary that premiered at the Marbella International Film Festival yesterday, Wednesday October 2 at the Teatro Goya in Pueto Banus.

The war in Syria has also meant that much of Syria’s rich cultural heritage has also been destroyed. The Bridge to Paradise tells the heart­breaking story of some of the estimated 1.5 million refugees that have fled to Europe for a better life, and the many struggles they face on their journey. Chinese director Jianan Fan, who produces movies often relating to multicultur­ alism or religion, met Chi­ nese photographer Zhilei Zhang at the Cannes Film Festival. Shortly after, the two set out on their journey that they hoped would bring worldwide recognition to the plight of refugees affected by the Syrian civil war. The film was produced by Ben Niu who turned the phone images into an im­ pactful film that has so far enjoyed critical acclaim. The film was funded with the help of businessmen who hopes that by supporting tal­ ented filmmakers they will in return be able to provide quality, influential media.

The film is heart­warming and tear­jerking as well as truthfully informative in a way the producers hope will show the reality that the day­to­day media fails to convey. For Syria, the statistics are frightening. Since the conflict began in 2012 around half a million Syrians have been killed or are missing pre­ sumed dead. An estimated six million Syrians are now refugees, and the same amount again have been internally dis­ placed or are homeless with­ in their country.

As well as the glamorous events that attract stars who want to be seen, the MIFF has attracted worldwide recogni­ tion for its contribution to the arts in the last 14 years.

World talent magnet The MIFF was set up to provide sup­ port for talented artists from across the globe and the festival gives them a chance to meet those with the money that can turn a film into a blockbuster. Those attending include filmmakers,

industry professionals, and dignitaries as well as the rich and famous. The festival offers networking oppor­ tunities to up and coming artists with the highlight being the glittering gala awards ceremony. Since its launch in 2006 the festival has attracted collaboration from the Spanish Tourist Board, Marbella Film Office and the Andalucia Film Commission. It’s never been a better time to enjoy the Marbella International Film Festival including red carpet events, film work­ shops, VIP parties and the excitement of the red carpet.

Hard man hopes for ‘soft side’ role IN a relaitvely short acting career, Terry Stone has carved a niche that has him firmly in the thug league. Having started acting in 2003 and doing the rounds of My Family, Eastenders and The Bill, four years later he had his first big screen hit

as Tony Tucker in the first Rise of the Footsol­ dier. The former rave organiser and night club boss is back in character for the fourth in the Footsoldier series that was filmed in Marbella and premieres at the Marbella International Film Festival tomorrow (Friday). So far Tony Tucker has been seen as the loy­ al back up to the lead character, gangster Pat Tate played by Craig Fairbrass. In this latest release, we see more of the character of Essex boy Tony Tucker as he em­ barks on a chaotic road trip from London to Marbella. The storyline has given Stone a chance to inject some humour into the role and give more insight into how the mind of Tony Tuck­ er ticks. “There’s a lot of stuff in this film that we didn’t have with the other films. We’ve added a lot of humour which we think will appeal to

FUN: The Essex boys of Footsoldier on the road. people. I think the audience gets to know the characters a bit more,” said Stone. Stone has done humour before but he’s al­ ways been cast in menacing roles and says he’d welcome a chance to show his gentler side. “I’ve played a lot of different roles but I’m usually the bad guy. I’d like someone to give me the opportunity to play a softer charac­ ter,” he mused. However, Stone acknowledges his forte is

real­life crime as his venture into production with the successful gangster movie Once Up­ on a Time in London confirms. He said: “I’m interested in real­life crime. I like the history and what was going on at the time these guys were operating. I’m not inter­ ested in fiction. These characters are real.” Stone’s looking forward to the Premiere of Rise of the Footsoldier: Spanish Heist when the film is up for an award.

Global movie showcase MOVIE fans have a last chance to meet their idols at the Marbella International Film Festival. The excitement started yesterday with a cocktail reception and opening ceremony followed by the red­carpet premiere of the Chinese documentary film The Bridge to Paradise and a series of short films. Today screenings start on Screen Two at 3.30pm with Hospital for the Poor while on Screen One audiences will see Take your Mark Banu starting at 3.45pm. The rest of the day will include screen­

ings of Children of the Snow Land, A Wake, Fish for the Hostage and The Curse of Abundance and the second series of short films. Friday October 4 starts at 3.15 with re­ peat screenings before the red­carpet pre­ miere of Rise of the Footsoldier: Spanish Heist at 7.30pm when fans will have the chance to meet the full movie cast. On Saturday screens open at 3pm for a repeat viewing of the shorts followed by evening premieres with the stars of Against the Tides, Brighton, Trick or Treat,

FINANCE Getting older

THE UK Office for National Statis­ tics has revealed the fact that by the end of 2018, there were 584,024 British citizens aged 90 or more and longer life expectancy is increasing. Whilst it used to be that women lived longer than men, there has been a recent significant spurt in the number of men who pass the age of 90 and insurers believe that neither the government nor indi­ viduals are planning ahead suffi­ ciently to deal with the greater need for long term funding.

Thomas Cook Fall Out

THERE are a number of longterm financial implications following the passing of the Thomas Cook Group into Administration which will affect not just the UK, but other European economies. Firstly, the British government de­ cided not to assist in injecting £200 million (€220 million) into the compa­ ny to see it through the winter, but it is estimated that it will cost £60 mil­ lion (€66 million) alone to charter air­ craft to return those stranded abroad. If the ATOL insurance scheme paid

By John Smith out to all of those who have lost de­ posits then it would be depleted for the future which means that it is more than likely that the British govern­ ment will have to cover whatever shortfall there may be, which could add another £40 million (€44 million) to the bill. Add to this the fact that 9,000 em­ ployees will be out of jobs and many may have to apply for unemployment benefits and it begs the question as to why the government wouldn’t help when it has stepped in with banks and

the steel industry. Thomas Cook specialised in a num­ ber of low cost holidays and now with so many people potentially looking elsewhere, what capacity is available has already increased in price. Spanish hoteliers who relied on block bookings from the travel com­ pany could face a very difficult winter and the German government has had to step in to lend the Condor Airline (a Thomas Cook subsidiary which oper­ ates many flights to mainland Spain and the Balearics) some €380 million to keep it in the air.

LEGALLY SPEAKING What about a noisy neighbour? The owner of the apartment above me in our community has rented out her flat to a woman and her daughter. Now they have bought a puppy, and we are subjected to frequent loud bark­ ing. Also, the mother sometimes stays out until late at night, leaving the daughter to play noisily until around 3am. I and other neighbours have protested to the mother about the noise. I presented a petition to the administrator and we have spoken to the presi­ dent and vice president about it. Do all rental con­ tracts have ‘No Pets’ included? Is ‘noise after mid­ night’ a violation of community rules or Spanish law? Can you advise me of any solution? B J (Costa del Sol)

No, not all rental contracts forbid YOU AND THE the keeping of pets LAW IN SPAIN and there is no spe­ cific prohibition against noise after midnight either in community rules or Spanish law. However, if the moth­ er leaves a minor child alone in the house late at night, she could face serious charges if someone informed the authorities. A simple mention of this possibility might bring about better cooperation.

Spain’s finances

GOOD financial news for Spain is that the US­based group S&P Glob­ al has upgraded its opinion of the Spanish economy to an ‘A’ even though there is due to be another election in November. Some analysts think that growth for the economy in 2019 and 2020 will be less than originally forecast but even the most pessimistic view supports expansion by at least 1.2 per cent. Spanish government bonds are also outperforming many others in the Euro market so things appear positive.

Store closures IN a bid to reverse falling profits, Sainsbury’s plans to shut 15 supermarkets, 40 convenience stores and up to 70 Argos stores in the UK as it looks to reduce costs by £500 million (€550 million) over the next five years.

Losing out A BBVA report highlights that although women get better results than men at university, their succes is not recognised in business, as many find it hard to secure jobs and those that do can be paid up to 9.5 per cent less than men.

Finance and education CURRENTLY companies throughout Europe spend trillions of euros in insurance of all types, but there is one area in which many are very vulnerable. The past few years have seen huge headlines concerning cyber­attacks on banks, government de­ partments, stores, credit card companies, indeed any organisation that stores sensitive details on computers is a potential target.

Last year, according to the European Insurance and Retirement Pensions Authority (EIOPA) the val­ ue of the cyber­insurance market increased by 72 per cent. Companies have gone out of business due to hacking and their inability to afford to pay compen­ sation to victims, so EIOPA believes it is imperative that companies take very seriously the ongoing risk and protect themselves by investing in insurance.

STAYING on top of the late s t c u r re n c y n e w s c a n help you time your transfers more effectively, so find out what you should be looking out for over the next month… Latest currency news A flurry of UK political develop­ ments have created significant Sterling volatility over the last month. This saw the GBP/EUR trade be­ tween 1.09 and 1.13 with EUR/GBP retreating to 0.88. Meanwhile, GBP/USD has climbed from 1.21 to 1.25 (having struck a three­year low of 1.19 along the way) whilst EUR/USD held steady at 1.10. What’s been happening? The pound has experienced dramatic swings over the last mon t h a s it was ro c k e d b y U K

Sterling rocked by chaotic month in UK politics

BREXIT JITTERS: Driving GBP exchange rates to new multi-year lows. political developments. Sterling initially plummeted when Boris Johnson announced that parliament would be sus­ pended for five weeks from early September. However subsequent move­

ment in the pound has been large­ ly positive, as Johnson faced a number of setbacks and the odds of a no­deal Brexit fell. A string of upbeat UK econom­ ic data added to the upside in Sterling, including a robust GDP

reading. Occupying almost all the atten­ tion of EUR investors over the last month has been the European Central Bank and its long awaited stimulus package. The stimulus measures were ul­ timately received positively by markets, helping to buoy the sin­ gle currency going into the second half of September. Finally, trade in the US dollar has been mixed in recent weeks in response to rising fears that a US recession could be looming fol­ lowing an inversion in the US bond yield curve and Fed rate cut spec­ ulation. What do you need to look out for? UK political developments are likely to continue acting as the main catalyst of movement in the

pound as we get closer to the cur­ rent Brexit deadline on October 31. The upcoming EU summit in mid­October will likely be key for GBP investors, as all bets will be off if Boris Johnson fails to secure a deal by then. Meanwhile, the euro may strug­ gle to find support over the com­ ing month if German data remains in the doldrums. Finally, the US dollar may be particularly sensitive to economic data in the coming weeks, as mar­ kets look to gauge whether the US economy may be drifting towards a recession.

LEAPY LEE SAYS IT OTHERS THINK IT WITH their plastic bottles, food cartons and litter left lying everywhere in their wake, plus the output of untold thousands of vehicle exhausts as they idled in traffic jams, these recent, badly mislead young ‘climate change’ protesters have left a carbon footprint that will probably not be ‘offset’ until they reach their coming of age. This present generation has to be the most spoiled, self­centered, misinformed bunch of youngsters the civilised world has ever pro­ duced. They have air­conditioning in the class­ rooms, mobile phones and gismos, they ride in cars to school, they suck up junk food like hoovers and insist on the latest trendy outfits at all times. All of these luxury products, which they seem to think are their God given right, are manufactured or supplied by enormous compa­ nies that pour billions of tonnes of carbon diox­ ide emission into the Earth’s atmosphere. These children’s selfish attitudes and lifestyles cause far more damage to our environment than the previous generations they are so keen to accuse. Those preceding them were mobile and ‘designer’ free and took bicycles or walked to their destinations. Most had never experi­ enced jet travel or air conditioning and opened


Self-centred and spoiled windows when it was hot, instead of closing them. They received new shoes or clothes only when the previous attire needed replacing, ate home­made sandwiches instead of Whoppers and read books. However, in these modern day youngsters’ defence, most have of course been brainwashed and mislead by the ‘usual sus­ pects!’ Many of the culprits are those who laughingly profess to be ‘school teachers.’ Stringy haired trendies, who actually started the rot when the first long haired leftie ‘free thinker’ plonked his behind on his desk and told the class to call him Jon! The same leftie brigade who welcome drag acts into the classrooms to ‘enlighten’ four­year­ olds, abolish winning and losing. Well this is the result. A whole generation of youngsters who not only have no respect for their elders but truly do believe they are actually superior. Ever increasing numbers of them would rather walk into the class with a knife than a ruler. I also wonder who was actually re­ sponsible for these utterly disruptive protests. Don’t tell me it was some precocious Swedish

16­year­old. Even this young lady admitted her total surprise at the extent of the demonstrations. No, this was an idea hi­ jacked by adults and cal­ lously exploited to further their own intentions. How do I know? Well, for one thing it was planned for a weekday wasn’t it? The organisers of this particu­ lar exercise were well aware that had it been organised at a weekend their protesting protégés would be too busy buried in their mobiles and Xboxes or showing off their latest designer trainers to even think about actually giving up their precious spare time. As it was it was a fun day out playing legalised ‘hooky’. If it had been parents taking their chil­ dren out of school for the day, they could have

Why we hate politicians NORA JOHNSON

THE UK is less than a few weeks from Brexit’s Halloween deadline, followed probably by a General Election, but just look at the choice offered by the main parties! Is there anyone near the top in any party that you’d want running the country, let alone trust? Boris (well, who really knows what he stands for?) and Corbyn who thinks he’s Goldilocks: not too Leave and not too Remain, just ‘right.’ Help! Problem is, politicians regard their ‘job’ as an all­expenses paid hobby. There may be some honest, decent, conscientious ones amongst them, but they soon learn what the ‘party line’ is. Basically, today’s politicians (many lacking real­world experience) can never say it as it is, never use common sense and hedge everything. Let alone their pe­ culiar way of talking whilst trying to ap­

JACOB REES-MOGG: A peculiar way of talking whilst trying to appear sincere. pear sincere. (Rees­Mogg, I’m looking at you!) Is there some ‘elocution school’ they’re forced to attend? If so, Ofsted should shut it down immediately. Obsessing over focus groups, they’re forever promising something ­ anything ­ as long as they’re re­elected. How about proper governance for starters? All peo­ ple want, generally speaking, is a safe en­ vironment to live in, clean water, decent food and enough money to live comfort­ ably. But so many politicians today simply

don’t tell the truth or deliver what those who elected them want. They have their own agenda, invariably increasing their own self­worth at the expense of those they’re ‘representing’ whilst simultane­ ously forcing ridiculous PC values on them. And in this fake­news PC age, nobody wants to hear the truth and so politicians are only too happy to oblige by failing to address it ­ either by ignoring it or being ‘economical’ with it. End result: voter ap­ athy ­ and so we end up not with the politicians we really need, but those we deserve. What is it about Britain that has pro­ duced such a run of failed leaders? Finally, on a really positive note, many thanks to all you readers out there who’ve left great comments on my web­ site about my latest thriller ‘Betrayal!’ Happy reading!

TEENAGE environmentalist Greta Thunberg has become one of the most influential campaigners of her generation at just 16 years old. She’s been nominated for the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize in her home country of Sweden where she has been lobbying parliament in Stockholm since August 2018. Her protest transatlantic ocean voyage by yacht from Southampton to New York catapulted her onto the global stage. She says she now has world leaders eager to have selfies taken at her side and has become the face of the youth climate change movement that has resulted in children skipping school to march against extinction. Greta Thunburg, with her wholesome rosy cheeks and pigtails, has won the admiration of millions; she has also earned her place as a hate target for those who question her credibility. Petrolhead Jeremy Clarkson reminded people he still exists by branding the youngster a ‘spoilt brat.’ Others say she has been ‘groomed’ by adults who are exploiting her youth and her Asperger’s for their own ends. The story goes that she was ‘discovered’ by her PR agency when its boss Ingmar Rentzhog happened to be walking past Stockholm Parliament and saw her solo protest with a homemade sign. In fact, the PR guru, who founded the green social network start-up business ‘We Don’t Have Time,’ had met the child and her family at a climate change conference a year earlier and has now raised more than $1.5m from investors for his company. Greta Thunberg’s passion is undoubtedly her own, but her campaign is no longer solo.

Putting the fun into funerals BARRY DUKE WHEN I landed a job in Fleet Street it quickly became apparent that, were I to continue a career in the epicentre of British journalism in the seventies, I’d soon go the way of other hacks who fell off their perches long before they reached retirement. It was the lifestyle that did them in: three­hour lunch breaks in the nearest boozer or wine bar, plus around 50 fags a day. I was expected to go with the flow ­ and I did. But one day I declared enough was enough, and I asked to be put on permanent night­shift when all pubs in the vicinity were shut. I made the decision after I attended the funeral of a colleague who stum­ bled out of a pub and dropped dead aged 45. His funeral ­ the first I’d ever attended ­ was a ghastly affair. The vic­

ar, who’d clearly necked far too much of the hard stuff, slurred his way through lengthy passages of the Bible, led the congregation in singing hymns they didn’t know the words to, and wound up an hour later by briefly thanking family and friends for smooth­ ing Harry Bridges’ path to heaven. I groaned, as did many others, for the man in the coffin Barry Smythe. And he was an atheist. I was livid, and swore I would never, ever attend a religious funeral again. I even drew up a document stipulating that my funeral was to be strictly secu­ lar and upbeat ­ and listed the songs to be played. I added Highway to Hell by AC/DC when it was released in 1979. My resolve held steady, even though, over the years, a number of close friends have died. I would have attended their funerals but, as in far too many instances, the arrangements were left to religious family members, and there was no way I would set foot in a church or crematorium where prayers were chanted, psalms read and hymns sung. But when I learned that a non­reli­

gious funeral was be held on Sep­ tember 24 for Nigel Constable, owner of Benidorm’s Com­ pany Bar, I made a point of attending, for I knew it would be a cheerful occa­ sion, especially as James McDonald, a leading Benidorm drag star, would be performing at Nigel’s send­off. Nigel, 72, settled in Benidorm around five years ago. Before that, he ran a gift shop in Brighton. Among his many interests when he lived in the UK were grey­ hound racing (he actually owned one of these dogs) and buying and selling rare stamps. Although I lived in Brighton for eight years, I only got to know him after he came to Spain and took over Company. We became firm friends.

FUNERAL: James McDonald (left) would be performing at Nigel’s send-off. He never ceased to amaze me with his breadth of knowledge about history, politics, literature and even cordon bleu cooking ­ and he often came up with great ideas for my weekly Euro Weekly News columns, of which he was an avid reader.

But I learned very early in my deal­ ings with Nigel never to get him onto the subject of Spanish bureaucracy and the unfathomable regulations govern­ ing local bars’ outdoor tables and chairs. His rants on these topics could induce migraines and cause one’s ears to bleed.

Help when you need it most THE loss of a loved one at any time is traumatic but if it hap­ pens here in Spain, you may well need help from a caring and knowledgeable team to deal with what could be a dif­ ficult process. The English Funeral Direc­ tors, based on the Costa del Sol was created some 20 years ago in order to offer ex­ patriates a service which will steer them through all of the requirements of Spanish law and ensure that the important administrative work is com­ pleted on their behalf. Traditions and practice with regards to death in the UK are quite different to those in Spain, where the deceased is normally buried within 24 hours, but if required, the Eng­ lish Funeral Directors can arrange to delay the process so that friends and family can travel over for the ceremony. They can also contact an English­speaking minister or celebrant to conduct the ser­

Returning to Consular Duties CONSULAR MATTERS ONCE the summer recess i s o v e r, e v e r y o n e i n t h e public sector goes back to w o r k i n o u r P ro v i n c e . Malaga has a large and active Consular Corp made up of 40 consulates most of which have jurisdiction i n t h e p ro v i n c e s w h i c h make up Andalucia. Having consular representatives taking part in official acts shows the importance of foreign residents, communities and visitors in the economy and society in general. The Consulates in Malaga represent the interests of an important part of the population which can be up to 30 per cent in some cities on the coast. On the consular agenda there are dates in September that are ab­

SAUDI NATIONAL DAY: Guests were entertained with typical delicacies and gastronomy.

solutely key such as the opening of the academic year of the University of Malaga and the reception of for­ eign students who come to study with the ‘Erasmus’ scholarships im­ plemented by the EU since years

ago which has allowed the easy and accessible mobilisation of students throughout Europe. So are the celebration of the re­ spective days for the National Po­ lice, the Local Police and the

Guardia Civil or the day of the ‘Penitentiary Institutions’ (Pris­ ons) these are important entries in the diaries of all those who are part of the Consular Corps and the rest of the representatives of

public institutions and authorities. Also on September 23 we had the reception where the Saudi con­ sulate celebrated its National Day which was held at the Hacienda El Alamo in Malaga which was attend­ ed by the Consular Corps, civil and military authorities , businessmen and other personalities. The Saudi Consulate displayed its famous hospitality and entertained the guests with typical Saudi delica­ cies and gastronomy. Next week we will all attend an­ other traditional celebration at the Consulate of the Federal Republic of Germany for the anniversary of Ger­ man unification. The importance of these meet­ ings goes far beyond the appropri­ ate photo opportunities and helps us build a network of official con­ tacts that allows us, on many occa­ sions to facilitate our consular work to help our citizens, always with the premise of non­intervention in inter­ nal affairs of the country and of course adhering to the laws in force.

You have to remember... MIKE SENKER IN MY OPINION Views of a Grumpy Old Man DO you remember when you were younger, and maybe even now, people kept a diary? It was a personal record of your daily life and the worst thing that could happen is that someone read it. Your personal thoughts, things you’d done and with whom. Now most people get totally de­ pressed if the whole world isn’t interested in what they are doing. How things change and, in my opinion, not for the better. I was married with two kids before I got my first email! I guess it’s progress and I have to ac­ cept it. Everything is instant. I don’t mind my coffee being instant, but everything else needs to slow down a little. I use a computer security software com­ pany called McAfee. I got a notice saying it was up for renewal in two months’ time but there was nothing to worry about as it was on automatic renewal and it would au­ tomatically charge my credit card a certain amount. Anyway, it’s been doing some­ thing every now and again that was annoy­

ing me. It kept changing my search engine if I added a certain update, so I decided to look around at other companies. I can­ celled McAfee’s automatic renewal. Well, the next day I get a warning from them about the consequences of not re­ newing ­ saying emerging cyber­attack techniques threaten devices worldwide and may let hackers steal your passwords, infiltrate private photos, emails, documents and exploit hardware flaws you have in your devices. This has been going on every day along with the odd special deal if I let them renew without question. All I need is a reminder that it needs renewing, not all this bombarding me with stuff. I know I need protection software, but this is not the best way to sell it to me. I don’t like this automatic renewal stuff. Recently I got a free subscription for Amazon Prime with my mobile phone com­ pany and I have to remember to cancel it. My car insurance does it and so does my household insurance. That one you have to do three months before or you can’t cancel it, but they don’t send you a reminder ­ you have to remember. I wonder how many people forget they have things that auto­ matically renew on products they have tried and don’t use and just thought would run out after the trial period?



TIME OUT ‘Greetings cards featuring artwork by AudreyQ are available at P.C. Highway, Javea with profits going to Aspadis, a Valencian charity for severely handicapped children.’

FOR NEXT 7 DAYS AQUARIUS (January 21 - February 19) Energy is low but your spirit seems to be getting power from somewhere. At times, it feels that it is almost outside of your own sphere. When tackling what is seen as a tedious task, you may not be aware that you are building something for the future, but there is much going on that will affect your future to a large extent.

PISCES (February 20 - March 20) For some time, things on the romantic front have been confusing, to say the least. There are decisions that someone has to make that affect you seriously. Romantically and emotionally, things come to a head but don’t let the wind of change blow away all that you have achieved. Don’t begin to doubt yourself or others will, too.

ARIES (March 21 - April 20) You may well feel that your business life is not going as well as you would have hoped this week. They do say that you can’t have everything right at once. This is a good time to enjoy the company of others and make your love life buzz.

TAURUS (April 21 - May 21) There is something of the rebel in you this week. Even you don’t fully understand the changes taking place. You will resist any attempt to stop from expressing yourself freely. Although you prefer a peaceful time, it may be necessary to remind someone of your rights.

GEMINI (May 22 - June 21) Because you are about to enter an active phase, it would be best to keep things as straightforward and organised as possible. Those around you may be less than exciting at the moment, so keep the interest going with joint activities and accepting interesting invitations.

CANCER (June 22 - July 23) Have you been a bit of a couch potato recently? Spend some of this week working towards a healthy mind in a healthy body. Running yourself ragged should certainly be avoided. Seek expert advice now about a problem that just won’t go away. It will, but only with a lot of effort. Although you prefer to share your activities, this is one area that you need to concentrate on fully, so go for it alone to begin with.

LEO (July 24 - August 23) Arm yourself with plenty of information about what is going on in your life at the moment. Those close might expect you to lead the way on an important matter. You need to trust your instincts more and have confidence. Think in the long term. Those who are not considered important now could be so in the future. As you prefer being in charge, this should not seem unnatural to you.

VIRGO (August 24 - September 23) Although you feel like going it alone at the moment, you would do well to involve someone close in your project or exercise. There is room for improvement in both your life and your health but it can be more enjoyable if shared. Expect surprises in your love life and you will not be surprised.

LIBRA (September 24 - October 23) It could be that you are feeling a little below par at the moment. You may assume it is because of a recent emotional upset, but it is unlikely to be quite that simple. Spend a bit of time and money on yourself for a change. Develop your talents in the realms of writing, painting and music. This need not take a large amount of time. Start with one simple project.

SCORPIO (October 24 - November 22) Despite pulling out all the stops when it comes to a certain person or project, your charm may not be working as well as usual this week. It is still a fine time to beaver on quietly in the background. A few emotional fireworks make you sit up and take notice, but try to be openminded.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23 - December 21)







Friday September 27





CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 20) Sometimes you shuffle things around to survive difficult times. The energy that this uses means that realising a dream this week could mean difficult choices to be made. Your need to be settled makes you impatient.

PETE BANNING was Clanton, Mississippi’s favourite son - a decorated Second World War hero, the patriarch of a prominent family, a farmer, father, neighbour, and a faithful member of the Methodist church. Then one day he committed a shocking crime.  Pete’s only statement about it - to everybody - was: “I have nothing to say.” He was not afraid of death and was willing to take his motive to the grave.     In a major novel unlike anything he has written before, John Grisham takes us on an incredible journey, from the Jim Crow South to the jungles of the Philippines during the Second World War; from an insane asylum filled with secrets to the Clanton courtroom where Pete’s defence attorney tries desperately to save him.  Reminiscent of the finest tradition of Southern Gothic storytelling, The Reckoning would not be complete without Grisham’s signature layers of legal suspense.

Are you a good driver or a gunslinger? MARBELLA MOMENTS BY NICOLE KING TWO summers ago a young girl visiting Marbella for a few month’s work experience died in one of the most horrendous acci­ dents imaginable. This lovely young woman was so conscien­ tious about getting to work on time she took a ride home in a car that didn’t have enough seatbelts for all the occupants and with a driver who was well over the per­ mitted alcohol limit. They took the Ronda road but never made it to their destination. This young soul was thrown out of the car through a half opened win­

dow and decapitated. She was the one in the middle without a belt and although she hadn’t been drinking, she was the one who

paid the ultimate price. She wasn’t irresponsible; she was young and naïve like most youngsters and she had no family

to turn to. She had let the pres­ sure of ‘doing the right thing’ or perhaps not making a scene or not having any other way to get home overwhelm her common sense. It took me months to assimilate the horror. Why don’t they have posters plastered on every wall from Puerto Banus to the car parks with an emergency ‘pick me up if in doubt’ sign with a desig­ nated emergency telephone num­ ber? I do somehow feel that it’s up to our resident community to help promote wiser choices or provide alternative solutions as well as selling and promoting alcohol con­ sumption on all fronts. Of course we also have those who are not so young but equally throw caution to the wind and dri­ ve anyway. As just one glass of

wine can put us over the limit, I think anyone who ever drinks and has a car is guilty of this at one time or another, but perhaps we shouldn’t take such a blasé atti­ tude when it’s more than that. We all want to have fun and we all want to make money, so it’s al­ so important that we do go out and help keep our local businesses flourishing at the same time! It’s finding the happy medium and ways to remind ourselves when getting into our cars, or mo­ torbikes, that most of us wouldn’t walk around with a loaded gun, even less so brandishing it around on a drunken night out, so why take the risk when we know, if we care to think about it, that even the best driver is as dangerous as a mindless gunslinger when loaded. • •

Brain food WITH life expectancy ever increasing, many of us are looking for ways to improve our quality of life a n d re v e r s e a n y d a m a g e caused by an unhealthy lifestyle. Fortunately, researchers in Spain have found a way of reversing brain damage brought about by high fat diets. A study at the Jaume I University in Castella de la Plana found mice which were given high levels of fat developed damage to their ner­ vous system similar to that in Alzheimer’s patients, but that this was reversed when they were fed a plant hormone. This hormone, abscisic acid, was found to reduce inflammation in the part of the brain where we store memories. Researchers be­ lieve this effect may be caused be­ cause abscisic acid helps regulate

insulin levels which, when out of balance, can cause inflammation in insulin receptors in the hippocam­ pus, the region of the brain which governs long term memories. In­ flammation of the nervous system and unregulated insulin levels are both linked to Alzheimer’s Disease and other forms of dementia. The study’s author, Alberto Ribes Navarro, explained: “We have been able to prove that the expression of proteins required for the proper functioning of insulin decreases in neuro­inflammatory situations induced by a high­fat di­ et.” He added: “With the addition of abscisic acid to the high­fat diet it is possible to rebalance the regu­ lation of these genes, even helping them reach normal levels.” Abscisic acid is found in a plant’s xylem (the stem) and is used by plants to help with growth and de­ velopment of tolerance to harsh

conditions. The hormone is found naturally in fruit and vegetables. A 2015 study into the acid also found it played a role in regulating blood sugar, which could in turn help de­ lay the development of diabetes. Ana Maria Sanchez, who headed up this latest study, shows how this new evi­ dence goes even further, even undoing d a m a g e caused by an un­ healthy lifestyle. She concluded: “We have verified how a vegetable hormone, abscisic acid, is able to counter the nega­ tive effects that a high­fat diet has on the central nervous system.” REPAIR: Fruit and vegetables can reverse damage.

Tasty fat burning fruits WHAT you eat is just as important as what you don’t when it comes to reducing body weight. But fortunately, eating fruit is a great way to burn fat and keep cravings for sweet stuff at bay. Research carried out by the World Health Organisation, American Heart Association and Dietry Guidelines for Americans among others, has confirmed that fruit intake is positively related to weight loss. Fruits contain very few calo­ ries while also being crammed with vital nutrients to keep

FAT BUSTING: Up to 30 fruits are great at helping to reduce body weight. stomachs full for longer. And fruits can be enjoyed during breakfast, lunch, dinner, or as a snack for in­between meal munchies.

Studies have also shown that eating specific fruits help burn fat more efficiently. Here are some of the more effective fat­ burning fruits. Apples are the most fibre­ rich sources found in nature. Studies show that fibre is an in­ tegral part of reducing visceral fat (belly fat), and that a higher soluble fibre intake every day can reduce tummy fat by 3.7 per cent over a five­year peri­ od. Avocados are well­known for being high in fat, but they also help to burn fat too. The high amounts of omega

9 fatty acids, known as mono­ saturated fats, help the meta­ bolic processes of converting fat into energy. Bananas are great at lower­ ing body fat. They keep the stomach fuller for longer, are high in magnesium and potas­ sium and can help with diges­ tion problems and bloating. Coconuts are naturally sweet in flavour and even small quantities of the flesh can satis­ fy hunger. They are also packed with medium­chain triglycerides (MCTs) which can boost the metabolism efficien­ cy by up to 30 per cent.

Commonly referred to as melon, Honeydew is rich in a number of vitamins and nutri­ ents. They contain heaps of vit­ amin C which boosts the im­ mune system and fights against fat build up. Honeydew is also a great source of vitamin B com­ plex which breaks fat down and converts it into energy. And lemons are great for detoxifying the liver, and hav­ ing a healthy liver aids the abili­ ty to digest food and burn fat. Lemons also prevent the accu­ mulation of fat in the body. Other great fruits include grapefruit, apricots, blueber­ ries, pomegranates and water­ melon.



THE three S’s of a ‘happy’ knee: 1. (No) Swelling 2. Straight 3. Strong If you have knee pain, focusing on these three points will make an enormous difference. Before Surgery Most of us are aware of the need for rehab after surgery. But there is increasing research to suggest that to get the best results from surgery you need to do some work before surgery too. Dr Donald K Shelbourne is an American sur­ geon who pioneered the ACL reconstructive techniques. And he has also developed the Ac­ celerated ACL Reconstruction Rehabilitation Protocol. Using this Protocol, his (and my!) patients re­ turned to full, daily activities at four weeks after surgery! And back to sport at eight weeks after surgery!

The Secret to stopping knee pain

KNEE PAIN: Straight is important. surgery is booked. After surgery If you’ve had surgery these three points be­ come even more important. In fact, they are the entire focus of your recovery.

And it needs to start the first day after your surgery. The longer you wait the more the mus­ cles waste and the harder it is to get right. • You will most likely need at least one, if not two crutches to get home. These aren’t always provided, so get them before you go and PRAC­ TICE! • Have an ice pack or two ready to help to reduce swelling. • Start your knee straightening exercises as soon as possible, preferably within 24 hours of surgery! (do check with your physio in case of any complications) Why is straight important? If you aren’t straightening your leg correctly you aren’t using your foot, ankle, knee or hip correctly. You have a limp (even a teeny, tiny one!) and this can cause back pain as well. Inside tip ­ If you’ve got lower back pain that isn’t responding to treatment, it might be your knee that’s causing the problem! If you don’t get a full range of motion in the

knee: 1. The joint position is not correct which speeds up cartilage damage. 2. The quadriceps muscles lose full ‘control’ of the knee. 3. Ligaments don’t work properly. 4. The hamstrings are no longer stretched correctly. 5. Puts incorrect pressure on your foot caus­ ing ankle and toes problems. Get the knee in good shape A knee replacement only replaces the bone not the soft tissue around it. So if the soft tissue is in bad shape before surgery, it’s only going to get worse! Meet the following conditions BEFORE surgery and guarantee a good outcome: • Full range of motion ­ that’s completely straight as well as completely bent. • Little or no swelling. • Normal walking (no limp!) • Good quad strength.

Getting the knee straight is far more important than getting it bent (you can find basic knee straightening exercises on my blog - For more information about pre and post surgical support for knee surgery please check out our blog, or call us on 952 883 151.

Sleep to forget Rapid eye movement, or REM, sleep is a fascinating period when most of our dreams are made. NOW, in a study of mice, a team of Japanese and US researchers show that it may also be a time when the brain ac­ tively forgets. Their results suggest that forgetting during sleep may be con­ trolled by neurons found deep inside the brain that were previously known for making an appetite stimulating hor­ mone. “Ever wonder why we forget many of our dreams?” said Thomas Kilduff, PhD, director of the Centre for Neuroscience at SRI International, Menlo Park, Califor­ nia, and a senior author of the study published in Science. “Our results sug­ gest that the firing of a particular group of neurons during REM sleep controls whether the brain remembers new in­ formation after a good night’s sleep.” REM is one of several sleep stages the body cycles through every night. It first occurs about 90 minutes after falling asleep and is characterised by darting eyes, raised heart rates, paralysed limbs, awakened brain waves and dreaming. For more than a century, scientists

have explored the role of sleep in storing memories. While many have shown that sleep helps the brain store new memo­ ries, others, including Francis Crick, the co­discoverer of the DNA double helix, have raised the possibility that sleep ­ in particular REM sleep ­ may be a time when the brain actively eliminates or forgets excess information. Moreover, recent studies in mice have shown that during sleep ­ including REM sleep ­ the brain selectively prunes synaptic connec­ tions made between neurons involved in certain types of learning. However, until this study, no one had shown how this might happen. “Understanding the role of sleep in forgetting may help researchers better understand a wide range of memory­re­ lated diseases like post­traumatic stress disorder and Alzheimer’s,” said Janet He, PhD, programme director, at NINDS. “This study provides the most direct evi­ dence that REM sleep may play a role in how the brain decides which memories to store.”

‘Goat’ jibe row IT was an awkward moment when TOWIE’s Olivia Attwood bumped into co-star Courtney Green in a bar after an on-set row in Marbella. A furious row between the rivals broke out during filming in Spain that ended up with Green trying to show­ er Attwood with a plate of olives. They came face to face in Music Bar café when the cast got together to party the night away. Green is said to have shrugged off the incident and barely gave Attwood a second glance as they rubbed shoulders at the venue. The row is said to have erupted when, Attwood claims, Green insult­ ed her likening her to a goat, spark­ ing the row that ended in Green be­ ing dragged away by producers.

Fill your head with Rock Gala concert DANZA INVISIBLE: Performing in San Pedro in 2017.

THE town of Estepona has a very vibrant Russian community which is arranging for the construction of a major Orthodox Church for those in the area. As part of its ongoing relationship with the town it has established an annual Festival for Children and Creative Youth TU ONDA which is supported by the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation, the Embassy of the Russian Federation in Spain, the Cos­ ta del Sol Tourism Council as well as Malaga and Es­ tepona councils. There has been a competition running over the last week and on Sunday October 6, at 5.30pm the Gala Final will be held at the Felipe VI Auditorium and entry is free. Some 13 young performers are expected to take part in this festival which links the Russian commu­ nity with Estepona.

Classics on the Coast from San Pedro and one from Marbella, as well as those from slightly further afield. Samper Beat will kick off the concert with their trib­ ute to The Beatles, followed by performances from Tres en Rallla and metal band Iraea. Next on stage with their hard rock sound will be

Crude Rock (who will prove that their musical style is not) and then Denyse and the Histéricos will introduce the audience to their latest album Welcome to the Rock and Roll Circus. Headlining the festival will be Indie band Danza Invisi­ ble who return to San Pedro with a selection of songs garnered from their 21 al­

bums and they are expected on stage at about 10pm. Although with strong con­ nections with Torremolinos, Danza Invisible were formed in Madrid in the 1990s and were in the forefront of the emerging Madrid music scene. There will be DJs to keep the music coming until the wee hours.

THERE are two exceptional musical and dance events for classical buffs during October at the Con­ gress Palace in La Linea de la Concepcion. First on Wednesday October 16, the Russian Na­ tional Ballet will be performing the evergreen ballet Swan Lake with tickets costing from €25 to €30 plus booking fee online. Then on Wednesday October 30 it’s the turn of opera when Rigoletto by Verdi will be performed on stage with tickets for this presentation also costing from €25 to €30 online.

This week Celebrity & Fellow Master Chef Steven Saunders, proprietor of The Little Geranium in La Cala cooks at El Torreon restaurant in La Cala for a special tribute and charity event.

A week of Rice! Steven Saunders FMCGB The Little Geranium La Cala de Mijas & Marbella EVERY year my good friend and business colleague Salvador from El Torreon re s t a u r a n t o n t h e b e a c h front in La Cala (by the Torreon/Tower) throws one hell of a party. Those words make me smile be­ cause when you meet him that is what he will say to you! He uses those words like my friend Chico uses ‘What time is it?’ I hooked up with Salvy and we sat over coffee as he explained his passion. “We have been celebrating a week of Spanish rice for six years now. “It’s an opportunity to bring our little community together with some officials like the Mayor and the Chief of Police and enjoy lunch or dinner celebrating Spanish rice but also an opportunity to tribute

some people usually in our indus­ try who otherwise may go unno­ ticed for all their hard work and dedication.” Salvador explained that the rice week (from October 29 to Novem­ ber 3) is covered by Spanish TV and by the national and local press. It’s also an opportunity to raise some funds through an auction and this year the money raised will be for baby Antonio who is 14 months old and his body rejects what he eats and so needs con­ stant hospital assistance. It’s a rare disease and funds will help pay for treatments, but also for re­ search. So all in all an excellent way to enjoy great food and company and congratulate tribute winners, raise money for charity, mix with the lo­ cals and discuss parking issues with the police (at least that’s what I will be doing!). Salvador loves to throw a party and this year promises to be the best year ever as one of the high­ lighted special days for rice week is a day with me cooking! On October 30 I will be responsible for prepara­

EL TORREON: Head Chef Isaac, Steven and Manager Cristobal. tion of four great courses using my truffle risotto as my rice course, but

also my scallop wellington, creamy celeriac velouté and white choco­

late espuma. Priced at only €25 for lunch or dinner which includes wine, beer and water, it’s a real steal and if you want to come along email and I will arrange the booking. El Torreon is famous for its pael­ la and I have to say that I eat all over the coast and I have never had a better paella than the ones made by Chef Isaac in the Torreon kitchen. It has real authenticity. I will never forget Chef Theresa (sous chef) showing me how the high heat caramelizes the rice to the sides of the paella pan, it’s called Socarrat… Eso es lo major! Or …’that’s the best bit’ she said (in Spanish). She was right and if you achieve Socarrat you have created the per­ fect paella! It adds texture as well as that lovely intense sweetness and crunch, sitting here writing about it makes me want to get down there and order paella for lunch! So this week in advance of Sal­ vador’s rice week, I am celebrating their famous paella and so here is their secret recipe!

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

Traditional Paella PAELLA is a traditional Valencian dish from the east coast of Spain with Moorish influence. The closer to the coast the more fish is used and in the north they will add chick­ en, pork and rabbit. I often add fresh clams, concha fina clams and sometimes lobster, albeit this is not traditional, but it is kinda lovely! INGREDIENTS SERVES 4 1. 6 cloves garlic 2. 1 onion 3. 1 red bell pepper 4. 400g of fresh squid cleaned 5. 100ml extra virgin Spanish olive oil 6. 150ml tomato puree 7. 1 tsp smoked paprika 8. Maldon salt 9. Black pepper

10. 700 ml fish or chicken stock (enough to more than cover the rice) 11. 1 small sachet Spanish saffron in powder form 12. ½ tbsp of saffron threads 13. 400g paella rice 14. 12 large raw jumbo prawns or 24 smaller ones (peeled and de­ veined) 15. Approx 16 fresh mussels (de­ bearded and cleaned) 16. Fresh parsley 17. Fresh lemon METHOD 1. Firstly cut up all the ingredi­ ents, finely chop the garlic, dice the onion, dice the red bell pepper and cut one large cleaned tube of squid into rings or ask your fishmonger to do this. Reserve the raw prawns that have been peeled and de­

veined and the cleaned mussels. 2. Heat a paella pan or large fry­ ing pan and add the extra virgin Spanish olive oil, once the oil gets hot, add the squid, mix it around and cook for two minutes, then re­ move the squid from the pan and set it aside. 3. Now add the onions and garlic into the pan and mix with the oil, then add the red bell pepper, mix and cook for a few minutes. 4. Next season everything with the smoked paprika, a generous pinch of salt and a little freshly cracked black pepper, continue to cook for two minutes, and then add the squid back into the pan. 5. Now add the fish or chicken stock and the saffron and the toma­ to puree and gently mix everything

together. 6. Once this comes to a boil, add the paella rice to the pan and then gently distribute the rice throughout the pan with a wooden spoon. After a few min­ utes of cooking add the raw prawns and then the mussels on top. (I mention enough stock to cover the rice in the ingredients because pans vary in size. The rice/fish mix must be cov­ ered with the stock.) 7. Put in a hot oven 250ºC for about 15/20 minutes or until there is very little broth left. Check and if you don’t have the Socarrat (burnt rice on the bottom of the pan), turn


the hob on to a medium­high heat and put the pan on it for one minute or so. 8. Finally cover the paella pan with tin foil and let it rest for five minutes. 9. Uncover the paella, sprinkle with freshly chopped parsley and squeeze the lemon over and serve!

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.

The highest-ever speeding fine to date - €650,000 - was handed out to a Swedish man who was clocked driving at 180 mph in Switzerland in 2010.

Muscular and athletic AUDI Sport presents the new edition of the RS Q3 and the RS Q3 Sportback. The two sport compacts offer out­ standing performance, athletic design and maximum everyday usability. The Singleframe with no colour­con­ trasting surround in the compact SUV creates an even sharper impression. The rising shoulder line on the Sportback is set farther down than on the sister model, lowering the body’s optical centre of gravity. As such, the body ap­ pears even more muscular and the wheels larger. Both Audi Sport high­per­ formance sports cars under­ score their performance aspi­ ration with pronounced muscles over the wheel arches, which have been flared by 10 mil­ limetres. The low­slung roof line culminates

in strong, flat sloping D­pillars. The RS­ specific long roof edge spoiler in the RS Q3 emphasises the pronounced for­ ward thrust of the high­performance SUV and ensures improved downforce. The new generation of the RS Q3

comes for the first time with a dual­ branch RS exhaust system with large oval tailpipes on both sides and chrome­coloured trims. The high­performance SUVs come standard with LED headlights. The rear

lights also feature LED technology. The multi­award­winning five­cylin­ der engine gains a good 17 per cent in­ crease in power. The RS Q3 and RS Q3 Sportback sprint from zero to 100 km/h in just 4.5 seconds. The top speed is regulated at 250 km/h or an optional 280 km/h. The 2.5 TFSI engine is ex­ tremely compact and is 26

kg lighter than the previous model. Its crankcase is made of aluminium, which alone saves 18 kg. Elaborate measures reduce internal friction while at the same time increasing power output. The wheel­selective torque control perfects the safe and agile han­ dling. Its consistently sporty tuning satis­ fies the basic requirements for the outstanding handling of the two sport compacts. The RS­tuned progressive steering also conveys close contact with the road even on fast bends. The athletic design of the ex­ terior is echoed in the car’s interior. The air­condition­ ing control unit, the centre console and the MMI touch display are tilted toward the driver by 10 degrees ­ the en­ tire cockpit is very much designed with the driver in mind.

Ride on the wildside A CAMPER that s built for off-road adventure has been launched by Peugeot. With its expressive style and innovative materials,

the Peugeot Boxer has sold 720,000 copies since its launch and is now be­ ing transformed into an adventurous fighter. As Peugeot’s intense

and exciting embodiment of the recreational vehi­ cle, it has been the subject of extensive customisation and goes off the beaten track.

The van has a striking ‘outdoors’ look in wander­ lust green, mint and Al­ cantara grey. The successor to the Peugeot Rifter 4x4 Con­ cept, it is also designed for exploration on all types of terrain, it has Dangel all­ wheel drive, specific tyres and higher ground clear­ ance. To provide the full expe­ rience, its 10 m² surface area is equipped to ac­ commodate up to three people in comfort for long trips. And to go even further, it can carry a Peugeot eM02 FS Powertube elec­ tric mountain bike on a rear­mounted rack and a Canadian canoe on the roof rack. The Peugeot Boxer 4x4 Concept makes its world premiere this week at the Recreational Vehicle Show, which will be held at Le Bourget, France until October 6.

The Big Cats day out L

A S T weekend was the turn of the Jaguar Enthusiasts Club, Costa del Sol chapter, to get busy and put on a most enjoyable car run and lunch. This time they started from the Restaurante El Trapiche for a trip northwards. In addition to the Big Cats there were a few welcome interlopers with a Mercedes, a BMW plus a hire car making up the party. This is what their Chairman, Philip Wray, had to say about the day:“Although the weather was overcast, and the forecast was for rain, we departed from Trapiche past Lake Viñuela and on to Periana and towards Guaro. What is so enjoyable about this piece of road is the uphill climb in the foothills of the Sierra de Tejeda with the profusion of hairpin bends and not a single car coming the other way. Not that there is no life here as we encountered a couple of substantial herds of goats wandering along the road under the watchful eye of their goatherd. The stupendous views were hidden by the low cloud so we had to imagine the panorama stretching on into the distance. Passing the summit the road straightened with a gentle descent towards Alfarnate. Although I thought my directions were clear it was fascinating to observe from the back that cars instead of going straight on as expected decided to scatter left and right. Not a disaster as most noticed their variations and after a quick U-turn rejoined the route. Alfarnate is a pretty little village with narrow streets which follow the riverbed. Onwards to the Venta de Alfarnate on the junction of the old Malaga to Granada road. T he venta is said to date from the 13th century. In 1850 a gang of 12 armed men carried out a robbery on the Malaga stage coach and there have been many famous visitors as well as assorted bandits. One of the better known was Luiz Monoz Garcia, the cross-eyed bandit from El Borge who used to frequently visit his mistress who had a husband in Alfarnate. Unfortunately the venta was closed. The only sign of life was a very affectionate grey cat who was a bit like a rash, difficult to get rid of. Instead of coffee we had our traditional cava stop with crisps and orange juice. Suitably refreshed we continued towards Zafarraya and then back down the stunning route to V iñuela. E n route we

stopped for a coffee at the Restaurante Fuente la Pena. What a marvellous little restaurant, very friendly with great service and superb meat roasting which persuaded a couple to buy a tray full to take home. We will be back for a lunch here. After coffee we continued to the excellent Restaurante el Pantano on the shore of Lake Viñuela. As usual we were warmly welcomed and were served a huge lunch with a selection of cheeses followed by a very tasty starter of chorizo and morcilla; then came a selection of either a prawn cocktail or a giant chicken salad. If you had any room after all that there was a choice of multiple lamb steaks, grilled salmon or massive chicken kebab followed by desserts. All this washed down with soft drinks or wine. As Ian said during the meal, “This is the best meal I have had for 30 euros for very many years.” Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day and departed after 5.00pm being careful past the speed camera on the downhill part of the A356. The next J EC run will be on October 19. Do join us.” There is so much to do on the coast for classic and modern car enthusiasts these days, how lucky we are to have so much to do and with the weather and roads to enjoy the cars and the countryside. And, of course, always a decent lunch to finish up these events! Starting this weekend is Drive Andalucia’s first running of their Tour Al Andaluz. Thirty cars and 60 people will set off through the Montes de Malaga on Day 1 of this fabulous seven-day Tour with a rest day in Lisbon mid-way through the event.

We’ll have a full report and pictures in the next issue. Also this weekend, on Saturday, is the CCCA October run starting from El Caserio near E stepona and finishing at V enta E l G arcia near C asares where a first class lunch will be expected!

That’s it for now, more next time!

BIGGAR’S boot started the game, he kicked deep and targeted Hooper. Starting an early turn over Wales won the ball in hand about 30m out. The first possession and Wales pinched it, the man with 10 on his back slotted it perfectly and first points, first blood went to Wales. Haylett­Petty almost broke the line on the restart, but he could­ n’t maintain control and the ball went to ground. Wales ad­ vanced, and it was a penalty against Australia, Ashley­Cooper was accused of being off his feet. Biggar from near the touchline took the penalty, but he slotted it just to the left. It was a let­off for Australia, 6­0 could have been a harsh start. On the 11th minute the scrum collapsed, Australia was accused of angling. The Welsh line­ out was about 20m out. They went deep and it was North on the run once again. A few phases, but Australia’s defence picked out the one­off runners. Biggar kicked to the corner, and it was Parkes who raised above Koroi­ bete to pluck the crossfield bomb and place it for a Welsh try. Big­ gar converted with ease taking the game to 0­10.

Victorious Wales beat Australia CELEBRATIONS: Wales defeated Australia.

Wales kicked to touch and set the lineout on the 18th minute of the match ­ but it was pinched by Australia, a great catch from the men in gold. Wales kept the defensive runner up, and the maul went nowhere. with another turnover. It was a good scrum from Australia ­ they won the penalty and got out of danger. Kerevi took another big carry before Foley looked cross­

field with a kick, and it saw Aus­ tralia take their first try; 5­0 with the Australians getting into the flow of the game. Australia pushed wide on 26 minutes and it was George North who gave away a penalty. They played on, and it was Kerevi with another monster run ­ he dropped the goose step and palmed off a would­be tackler before Biggar came across with a

crucial try­saving tackle, Australia came back for the penalty. Foley slotted it from 10m in from touch. It floated a little ugly, but it flew between the sticks to make it 8­10 and narrow the scoreline. Owens won a lineout feed on 30 minutes, which Wales won but it was a poor pass out of the halves and Patchell did very well to pick up off his bootlaces. The Welsh continued to probe and it was Hooper who was eventually penalised for coming in over the top. Patchell lined up for the kick and scored taking the game to 8­13 extend­ ing the Welsh lead. It was another penalty three minutes later against Australia af­ ter yet another foul to which Wales again slotted home to

make 8­16 once again increasing the Welsh scoreline. Nearing half time Genia threw a risky throw and it was plucked out of the air by Welshman Davies, and he sprinted away for the try. Patchell once again took the conversion blowing the mas­ sive 16­point margin at half time with the score at 8­23. Forty two minutes into the second half Wales burst down the wing. Fifteen metres out, they set up nicely, it was passed back to Patchell, and he slotted home the dropkick. It was a great start by Wales making it 8­26. Straight after on 45 minutes Toomua took a half break before Haylett­Petty made a burst. He looked inside for Toomua again. They were about a metre short of the line that saw desperate tryline defence from the Welsh. But it was Pocock who drew two defenders before finding the fullback outside him


once again. It was a fine flowing move ending in a great try. Toomua lined up the conversion. Straight over it went for 15­26. Wales defended well until the 60th minute when Australia set up a maul, but it went nowhere. They spun wide and Hooper’s eyes lit up taking Australia a me­ tre short of the line, Hooper popped it under the sticks, claim­ ing it. It was pure muscle from both sides. Such an incredible de­ fensive effort from Wales, but the gold No 7 eventually found a way. Toomua with the kick scored taking the game to 22 ­26. Sixty­six minutes in and a penalty was awarded against Wales ­ an infringement in the scrum and Toomua kicked well for another three points and re­ duced the score to 25­26. Two minutes later saw a penalty against Australia as Rod­ da attempted a charge down ­ but his compatriot Kepu was pinged for offside. Wales kicked to touch and were awarded an­ other penalty. Patchell’s kick just crept inside the post ­ the lead extended to 25­29. A dramatic game played out as Wales defended for their life but they held on well until the hooter went to confirm a fantastic victo­ ry!


Ireland mauled by Japan IRELAND had a bad day at the office in terms of World Cup Rugby as they lost 19­12 to the hosts of the tournament Japan. Throughout the game, Japan were the more determined team as well as quicker and sharper in play which the Irish team could not cope with. The country of Japan waited in anticipation as their team on home soil awaited the hooter on 80 minutes after a tremendous display of quality rugby and causing a huge world cup shock. The Irish captain Rory Best in fairness was magnanimous in de­ feat saying: “We knew how tough it was going to be. Anyone that thought it wasn’t was utterly shocked, they hadn’t seen how good they are. “We came with a game plan and we felt we were really prepared. Give credit to them, they played really well and we made a few mis­ takes, a few unforced errors and were on the wrong side of the penalty count. They posed a lot of questions and we could not come up with the answers.” Meanwhile, the Japanese head coach was flying. He said: “We’re ecstatic about the result, we’re very proud of the players. We had a plan and have trained for a long time, we have been thinking about this game for quite a long time and obviously, Ireland had only been thinking about it for the last six or seven days. For us, it’s been a great performance. “You have to be careful before the game, you don’t want to come across too arrogant and cocky. We had a lot of belief in our game plan and knew how strong Ireland were. Credit to my coaching team, at the set­piece we were able to hold theirs. “Now it’s phase two, we have got another couple of games to go but we will enjoy tonight I reckon.”

Leicester City destroys Newcastle United LEICESTER CITY beat 10-man Newcastle 5-0 at the King Power Stadium in Sunday’s only Premiership game last weekend.

RICARDO gave Leicester a first­half lead while New­ castle were reduced to 10 men before half­time when Isaac Hayden was shown a straight red for his challenge on Dennis Praet. Leicester City were rampant in the second period, as they played 10 men scoring four times via a Vardy brace, a Paul Dummett own goal, and a late Wilfred Ndidi strike. The result puts serious pressure on Newcastle manager Steve Bruce’s head as fans of the Geordies are already call­ ing for him to be sacked.

Ron Garrood MIJAS GOLF is one of the most commercial golf re­ sorts on the Costa del Sol, with two walkable courses Los Olivos and Los Lagos. Los Olivos opened in 1984 and was refurbished by Ca­ bell Robinson during the season 2000 ­ 2001, follow­ ing Trent Jones’ original de­ sign concept. Slightly shorter than Los Lagos, Los Olivos is most notable for the multi­ tude of trees, which its name comes from. With fewer water fea­ tures, the 18­hole course is nevertheless very challeng­ ing. Par: 72 ­ four x 3 pars, 10 x 4 pars, four x 5 pars. The greens are smaller, un­ dulating and well defended by bunkers, and the strate­ gic narrow tree lined fair­ ways and elevated green de­ mand accuracy and skill.

LOS LAGOS: The longest of the two courses. With fewer water hazards, this 18­hole course is never­ theless very challenging. Los Lagos the longest of the two courses with 6,536 metres, was totally refur­ bished in 2012 and has kept the original design. A Par: 72 ­ with four x 3 pars, 10 x 4 pars, four x 5 pars.

DEFINITIVE WIN: Leicester take the points.


AFTER his race win, Hamilton said Ferrari had the right strategy for the Russian Grand Prix despite beating them to victory at the Russian circuit. Both Mercedes drivers started the race on the medium compound tyres while Ferrari favoured the softs. Hamilton said the race showed Ferrari made the right choice of tyre. Lewis said “we knew that we were obviously on a dif­ ferent tyre, we put our­ selves on a slightly different strategy in that respect and I was hoping that was going to give us an opportunity to dice and fight with them at some stage in the race.” Lewis also admitted Mer­ cedes underestimated how the soft tyre would be. “I think ultimately they were right because the soft tyre was much stronger than we anticipated. There was that difference

that I was taking out of them.” Mercedes’ strategy had been for Hamilton to run a long first stint on the medium tyres, but the Virtu­

al Safety Car changed that when it entered the track. “We were planning to ex­ tend for like 15­plus laps or something like that, hoping that when we came back out the soft we would have a chance to be able to fight with one of them who was on a different tyre. But obvi­ ously, the safety car and all those things came into it,” said the Mercedes team leader. Ferrari dropped out with

Vettel’s engine giving away, Charles Leclerc fell behind Hamilton in the safety car period and then dropped behind Valtteri Bottas when he made an extra pit stop for soft tyres. “Valtteri did an exception­ al job because it’s not easy keeping the Ferraris behind and Charles has been driving so well,” said world champi­ on Lewis. “Ultimately it’s just an in­ credible day for the team considering the challenges that we’ve had. I think this weekend we knew that we had to pull more out of this car and there was more po­ tential there, but we didn’t know where it was. I think we pulled ourselves a little bit closer to the Ferraris this weekend and it was just enough to get ahead of them.” Race result saw Mer­ cedes claw points also in the constructor’s championship with a 1­2 finish over Fer­ rari.
