SPAIN’S Costa del Sol has recorded the driest winter on record ever according to the national state weather agency AEMET.

A measly total of 11-litres per square metre fell during the months of December, January and February – which are traditionally the wettest months.

The measurement was made at the Malaga-Costa del Sol Airport and is the lowest on record since records began in 1942.

The dry winter followed torrential rains in October 2018 that saw many parts of Malaga province hit by devastating flooding and loss of life.
