IT has been more than six years since a law was passed in Malaga hitting out at people and companies leaving flyers on cars, yet the problem still persists.

The Olive Press has been contacted by furious expats whose young children picked sex-club flyers off their cars in Marbella, yet the authorities deny all knowledge and police apparently turn a blind eye.

While fining those responsible must be lower on the list than, say catching rapists and muggers, it still tarnishes the good name of Marbella.

Perhaps those in power should spend less time on parking tickets and speeding fines… and more on trying to clean up the town’s sleazy side.
