A tale of two resorts
It was a week that was in a way a tale of two resorts. Yesterday's edition brought news of a seemingly staggering amount of fines dished out by local police in Playa de Palma - almost a quarter of a million euros in the space of a week for breaches of the bylaw on public drinking (in groups) on the streets and on the beach. Earlier in the week - Tuesday - we reported on a further action by the local police against clubs in the resort that flout local ordinance. This operation was specifically against sex clubs, of which there are thirteen in all. Only one was found to be operating scrupulously in accordance with bylaws.
