TWO illegal encampments have been dismantled by police in Nerja.

One operation – on La Caleta de Maro – resulted in an arrest for the attempted attack of a police officer.

Another eight people were issued denuncias, including one for indecent exposure to minors.

After the encampment was moved on, 300 kilos of rubbish – including mattresses and furniture – were removed from the beach.

An operation on Paseo de los Carabineros, in the town centre, ended in the arrest of a Senegalese national – allegedly in Spain illegally – two denuncias and the seizure of goods which were to be sold illegally.

This is not the first time police in Nerja have had to take action against beach settlements, primarily consisting of African immigrants.

Camps at Playazo beach, the Mirador del Bendito and La Cala del Lobo Marino have previously been broken up and moved on by police.
