Dry riverEMERGENCY water tankers have been drafted in to Colmenar to deal with limited supplies.

Town Mayor Jose Martin Garcia took the decision to buy in water tankers after a series of 300 metre wells in Colmenar ran dry.

It comes after residents slammed Garcia for unveiling a large swimming pool, despite warnings that thousands of residents could be cut off from water supplies.

The tankers are a temporary fix while the town hall works with the Junta to ensure a more stable water supply.
