Spain was host to 24.8 million foreign tourists in the first half of 2011, a 7.5% increase over the same period in 2010, according to figures from the Spanish Institute for Tourist Studies.

  1. ‘Friends pouring tribute on social media described the young Brit as a ´character never to be forgotten´ and a ´good friend and doorman´.’ A fitting accolade indeed!

  2. I get sick and tired of reading one incident after another about drunken English. Why do so many English have to drink themselves into a stupor and or start fights. This is nothing new, there is a serious mental health issue here which is never confronted by any section of English society. Maybe the Floyd had it just right in 71 – quiet desperation is the English way – and the desperation gives way to alcohol suppression of the problem – going out to get drunk – seriously sad.
