AN arson attack has wiped out 20 lorries at an AVE construction site on the line between Antequera and Granada.

The attackers are reported to have cost subcontractors €2m by drilling through the fuel tanks of the vehicles before setting them alight.

An investigation has been launched but so far no arrests have been made in relation to the attack.

The vehicles had been working on the new line that will predominantly carry freight on the so-called Mediterranean Corridor.
