Cruise ships in Palma's port. | ARCHIVO

Palma town hall has held talks with the Balearic Ports Authority over the burning issues of cruise ships visiting the local port.

As we reported online yesterday there is growing concern over the pollution caused by cruise ships while in port.

A report from the government in Madrid said that there had been a number of contamination warnings after cruise ships emptied the water from their swimming pools while in port.

The water was said to contain large amounts of sun cream oil from bathers.
