SCORES of rubberneckers flocked to the Axarquia to witness the beached German cargo ship K Wave, as it floundered yards from the shore.

But for Fenicio the donkey, who lives in the quiet beachside settlement of Almayate, it was of particular interest.

One local resident commented: “Even on the best days of summer we don’t get this many visitors. Fenicio is a little overwhelmed by all the sudden attention.”

A re-flotation plan soon got the German crew back on its journey to Algeciras. Fortunately none of the cargo of 274 containers were spilt.
