SEWAGE being dumped into a river in Velez Malaga has led to a formal complaint from the Izquierda Unida (IU).

The party has demanded a solution to the waste water and rubbish being slung into Velez River from a bridge in the La Barranca area.

“Dumping sewage causes serious damage to the environment because it pollutes the aquifers as well as both sides of the river,” said IU spokesman Salvador Marin.
