The slump in the German holiday market in the Balearics this summer is being blamed on the widespread press coverage the water crisis has been given in the German media, but the drought and lack of water has not gone unnoticed in the United Kingdom either. The Bulletin has learnt from British tourists that certain travel agents in Britain are advising clients against a summer holiday in Majorca because of fears that there could be no water when the season reaches its peak. The British Consulate in Palma has also been receiving calls from potential tourists worried about the water situation and the Bulletin is also taking regular calls and e-mails from people considering a Majorca holiday but have heard about the water problems. The Evening Standard alerted all of London to the problem when it ran a story under the headline “crisis warning over water in Majorca” and went on to report that the island is some 15'000 cubic metres of water short per day.
