BRITISH and other tourists on all-inclusive package holidays in Mallorca would have their alcohol consumption restricted, it has been announced.
The move was revealed at showdown talks in Palma on Wednesday morning between tourism and government officials following a string of negative stories about drunken holidaymakers.
Hotels supplying Brits with all-you-can-drink booze would be limited under new regulations covered by the island’s Tourism Law.
The meeting saw officials from the Balearic Islands government, Calvia, Palma and Llucmajor town halls meet with local, national and Guardia Civil police as well as local businesses and hoteliers.
“We have to carry out each and every action necessary to put an end to this type of tourism,” said one official.
In the past week, British and German thugs have been filmed fighting in Magaluf and El Arenal, with local business leaders reaching the end of their tether.
Yesterday, Palma mayor Antoni Noguera begged German tour operators not to send ‘trash tourism’ to the island.
