Axarquia shark rumours dismissed as hoax

RUMOURS of a Jaws-style summer reign of terror in the waters off the Axarquia have been dismissed as a hoax.

Over the last fortnight the social media networks have been a-Twitter with reported sightings of shark fins scything through the waters off local beaches. Some claims went as far as saying beaches had been closed. But the Velez-Malaga and Algarrobo Civil Protection service says these reports are absolutely false.

Servimar, the company responsible for running the cleaning boats from Rincon de la Victoria to Nerja, is also unaware of any sharks in the area.
