At around 1.30am on Sunday morning, police and the Guardia Civil had to deal with a crowd of some 500 people on Magalluf's Calle Punta Ballena. Many were gathered outside the Capitol bar, and there were some incidents. A police charge dispersed the crowd, a number of whom went onto the beach. Sweeps of the beach eventually removed them.

Businesses on Punta Ballena have thanked the police for acting quickly. There are regulations against consuming alcohol on the street and against social gatherings between 1am and 6am. Bars have to close at 1am, while beaches are supposed to be closed from 10pm.

All the bars in the area should only be able to serve drinks in plastic glasses which are clearly marked with the name of the bar - no drink to be served in a bottle or can. Bars could then be fined for each of their glasses found in or on the street. They´d soon sort it out.

Do you remember when Palma Nova was a no go area because of yobs and crime, violence etc? The government sorted it out and is now one of the best family resorts on the island. Please do the same for Magalluf.

Once arrested, these scum should be banned from Spain.

Don't complain about the catch Calviá, this is what you baited your hook for when you let Punta Ballena re-open. Besides which, law without the capability to enforce it is effectively lawless. Exactly as we're witnessing with the new "laws" regarding electric scooters....
