Almuñécar has added two small launches to its High Seas Battle Fleet, tasked with clearing the waves of objectionable objects of dubious origin.
From the beginning of this month and up to the 30th of September they will be out patrolling, terrorising flotsam and scuppering sneak attacks by plastic bags, vegetation on buoyant holidays and unmentionables smuggled in from Nerja.
Both of these formidable craft are six metres in length, 2.5 metres wide and have onboard motors whose propellers are actually within the hull.
So if you want to witness the blighters in action, they’re patrolling Monday to Sunday between 11.00h and 18.00h, using the Marina de Este as their base.
