Eight people - British, Nigerian and Pakistani - were arrested during a Guardia Civil anti-drugs operation in Magalluf that started late on Thursday night.

At eleven o'clock on Thursday, 35 officers took part in the action that was centred on Punta Ballena. Dubbed Operation White Corner, it had been initiated at the end of May and involved extensive surveillance of a large number of drug dealers active along Punta Ballena. Cocaine, heroin, hash and pills were being sold to tourists and to workers. Quantities of these drugs were seized during the operation.
