Buses lose their bottle

The conspicuous red and yellow buses that operate between Palma and Port Andratx (and other destinations) have had new regulations imposed upon them by the enlightened folks at the Majorca Transport Consortium.

Bottles of water, or any other liquid, are now banned.

Now anyone who has had the pleasure of being on a bus for anything up to 90 minutes in the blazing heat will tell you that this new regulation is more than daft, it is plainly dangerous.

Some years ago, a bus we were travelling on diverted off route and stopped in the middle of a back street road outside a parade of shops. The driver got up and asked if anyone wanted to get off and buy a cold drink as the temperature outside was nearly 40°. Common sense if you ask us, but the bureaucrats obviously have other ideas as they sit in their air-conditioned ivory towers.

Camp de Mar Cat Burglar Caught

A Tunisian pensioner has been sent to jail after being convicted of robbing rooms in a Camp de Mar hotel and other establishments on New Year's Eve 2015.

The ex-Santa Ponsa resident scaled balconies to enter the bedrooms of guests who were out celebrating. He got away with cash and jewellery, some of which has been recovered by the police.
