WITH a number of people owning second homes in Motril and the attraction of the long weekend, Motril Local Police assisted by the National Police set up a number of checks on roads leading to the beaches to see whether there were any drivers ignoring Granada lockdown.
It is reported in local media that although no second home owners were caught, six cars from outside of Motril were stopped and drivers who apparently wanted to go shopping were fined and then sent home.
A handful of people have also been caught in public during the curfew hours without adequate reason for being out.
