A Palma nightclub has been shut down after Police discovered video of partygoers dancing the night away on a social media website.

National Police and Green Patrol experts have been trawling all social media websites to keep track of illegal party invitations and announcements in Mallorca and the rest of the Balearic Islands.

Officers raided the club in Plaza Mediterráneo in Palma on Sunday after spotting several videos on Instagram and found 65 young people dancing inside, with no face masks and zero social distancing.

Police say tensions were high when they entered the club, and customers were yelling at them and booing, but there were no major incidents. The club owners have been sanctioned.

Police also raided a concert in Bunyola on Sunday night and found 400 people having dinner in several tents. Two sanctions were issued, one for the venue and one for the restaurant.

@Kim - I cannot think where to begin, in the midst of this Covid-19 pandemic, to convey my dismay at your childish, selfish and reckless comments.

While our emergency and hospital services are pushed to the limit and risking their own health to ensure our safety, you think that your right to party is more important than reducing Covid-19 fatalities.

You should be totally and utterly ashamed of yourself.

I love to see police resources used against people dancing and enjoying life.

Then we must believe there is no more real crime in the world.
