Spanish police in British-registered car crackdown

POLICE are targeting British-registered cars in a series of roadblocks along the coast.

The campaign, which also includes inland areas around Ronda and Antequera, has been launched by the Guardia Civil in a bid to crackdown on vehicles which are not properly registered.Any

British car has to be registered onto Spanish plates within six months of arriving in Spain and vehicles are now being confiscated until the owners have completed the necessary forms.

It follows the recent seizure of six luxury cars on the same night in Puerto Banus as part of the initiative.

During the evening raid one of the cars, a Porsche, was dropped onto its roof while being loaded onto a lorry.

A tourist who watched the events unfold told the Olive Press: “It was a real smash and grab raid. Police were moving quickly and had no intention of letting anyone off.

“There were a lot of groans when the Porsche fell onto the road upside down.”
