AN incredible ONE PER CENT of the population of a village has been arrested in a crackdown on illegal construction.

So far, 35 people are being probed over the construction on non-development land in Villanueva de la Concepcion, near Antequera.

Both the current and former mayor have been arrested as well as various constructors and promoters.
