In an exclusive Olive Press interview with Gibraltar’s Chief Minister, Fabian Picardo extended a warm welcome to readers along the coast and across Andalucia.

Talking to editor Jon Clarke, he urged listeners to come and enjoy the attractions of the Rock.

He said: “Ladies and gentlemen, the queues are a thing of the past.

“Come back to Gibraltar and rediscover what we have to offer.

“Our restaurants, our fantastic refurbished hotels – all of them five-star standard these days.”

“Come and enjoy this rock of ours,” he concluded.
