Sunny-BeachTHE hottest May in recent memory has left Andalucia’s crops gasping for rain.

With only 1.7cm of rain – compared to the May average of 6.1cm – last month was not only the hottest for 68 years but also the driest.

Meteorologists Aemet are now issuing a warning to Spanish farmers as they predict more of the same for the months ahead.
