No Sneaking Down!

SPN riotpolice OnLThe Mayor of Motril, Luisa García Chamorro, has said that the Town Hall will tighten control on people sneaking down from Granada.

The fact that restaurants and bars are open down here on the coast, she feels, might be an irresistible attraction for the Granadinos whose own such establishments remain closed.

Consequently, the Policía Local will not only be checking that businesses are obeying the 18.00h closing, pedestrians are wearing masks and nobody from along the coast is sneaking it to boost Al Campo’s takings… they will also look out for northerners on a mission.

“I have spoken with the Police Chief and the Councillor for Citizen Safety, Mara Escámez, about tightening controls. We’re not going to let the sacrifices of many go down the drain owing to the irresponsibility of some,” said the Mayor.

Editorial comment: the photo is of a British woman caught trying to sneak into Al Campo to buy Earl Grey tea… just joking! The photo is actually from a couple of years ago during a riot in northern Spain.

    Well if said British lady could not acquire Earl Grey tea in her own municipality she could go to Alcampo (if it was nearby) without breaking any law

    k) Desplazamiento para la adquisición de productos de alimentación por quienes
    tengan su residencia habitual en localidades que, siendo de otro término municipal,
    carezcan de establecimientos que permitan la adquisición de tales productos y sean
    localidades limítrofes con los municipios con limitación de movilidad.

    P.S. Love the photo

    Belinda: Guess you missed the fact that this is a satirical, news publication both in print and online, not to mention the last paragraph explaining where the photo really comes from. No problem, however – there’s nothing like a spot of early-morning, righteous indignation, eh?.

    Shame on you!!. NOT funny to imply such heavy handed approach from the police is related to rule breaking about covid restrictions – when it clearly is not.
