´Altea business targeted with anti-British hate´
The images, which show the front of a restaurant painted with the words “Ingles fora d´Altea”, the Valencian for “English out of Altea”, have sparked appeals to find out who owns the business and those responsible for the crime.
Do you know whose business this is? Or have any other business been targeted by anti-British vandals?

The news comes after the Spanish government last week ruled out a Catalan independence referendum.
Previous attempts to hold a referendum in Cataluña in 2017 led to the arrests of several separatist politicians as well as riots in the streets.
Those in favour of an independent Cataluña say the Spanish government should now offer a vote, however the government has ruled it out although pardoned the nine politicians charged over the 2017 vote.
Aragones, 38, won 74 votes in the 135-seat regional assembly. His Esquerra party and the centre-right Junts agreed to maintain their coalition after months of political deadlock following inconclusive vote in regional elections held in February 2021.
The nine separatists who have received pardons and were released on June 23 are: former vice president Oriol Junqueras, former councillors Raul Romeva, Joaquim Forn, Jordi Turull, Josep Rull and Dolors Bassa; the former president of the Parliament Carme Forcadell; and Jordi Sanchez and Jordi Cuixart.
