New HQ
THE Mallorca Council has announced that it will pay for the construction of new headquarters for the Mallorca Fire Brigade in the industrial estate in Marratxi thanks to the supply of a suitable plot by the local Council.
Woman arrested
A Dutch woman in her 60’s has been arrested for allegedly attacking her husband with a bottle during an argument in their Palma flat as neighbours called the police due to the apparent ferocity of the row and the noise of the attack.
More parking
