IT is good news for motorists travelling on the A-7 after the Torrox tunnel was deemed safe following a simulated accident.

The fake pile-up was created in the Torrox tunnel, with the coastal motorway closed for several hours while response teams reacted.

Emergency crews from Nerja arrived in just 10 minutes while those from Velez Malaga took 18, with all flames extinguished and eight ‘victims’ safely rescued.
