AS the summer weather arrives in Majorca the beaches fill up with sunbathers.
However, they also fill up with roaming pedlars of food and drink who not only do not have the appropriate licences from the council, but also do not follow even the most basic hygiene rules.
Calvia's Local Police Force have deployed officers on beaches such as Magalluf, Son Matias and Santa Ponsa, where they have to apprehend the fruit sellers who offer portions of melon cut with knives which are undoubtedly unhygienic.
Apart from the bad public image which these roaming salespeople give to the beaches, there are also many questions over the money which these fruitsellers ask for their product as, unless the buyer objects, it is not unusual for them to sell a portion of melon for 20 euros.
The efforts of Calvia's Local Police Force to erradicate these roaming pedlars started at the beginning of the season when a permanent watch on the beaches was mounted, with the consequent invitations to the fruitsellers to leave the beach, the seizure of the fruit and the consequent sanctions which can be imposed on this type of offence.
The fruit seized is not thrown into the rubbish containers in the area, as these people could then come back and recover it.
