SPANISH police have been accused of going too far after allegedly beating British holidaymakers ‘for singing’. 

Video footage has emerged of a policeman running towards clubbers before attacking them with a baton on Saturday night.

The film, shot in a popular tourist resort, clearly shows the officer randomly attacking teenagers as they took part in a group singalong.

Daniel Davis, 34, told the Sun he saw one of the officers ‘whip’ young holidaymakers as they stood in the road.

“One of them had a whip, it was shocking,” he said.

A Spanish cop was filmed rushing Brit tourists with a batonDaniel was exiting a pub in the Santa Ponsa resort, on Mallorca, when he witnessed the attack at around 4am.

“Kids were chanting in the street. All of a sudden a car was trying to get past and that’s when police arrived,” he said.



“They came running in and were hitting everyone, they were so aggressive.”

When police officers saw Daniel filming, they allegedly tried to take his mobile phone.

He says they made him delete some of his footage, but his phone died half way through, meaning some of it was saved.

“There is a massive problem over there. They do not like anybody,” he said.

“They were just kids.

The officer demanded the man filming the incident stop

“There were two or three that were hitting people. They then called for back up, but the crowds weren’t aggressive or violent, they weren’t actually doing anything, only singing.

“There were people walking past who were getting hit. It was so aggressive.”

“It was a massive over-reaction by the police,” he said.

“Girls were screaming ‘what the hell has just happened?’

“The policeman knew it was an overreaction because he wanted me to delete the film.

“He went pale when he saw my battery die because he knew he couldn’t do anything then.

“I hid my phone down my pants. I was worried they would arrest me.

Holidaymakers were seemingly targeted at random

“They didn’t ask any questions, just got out the car, then bang bang bang.

“I come to the same place every year and I’ve never seen anything like this before.”

Police have yet to comment on the footage.

  1. Guardia Civil. . . a throwback from the days of Franco. Same as the Carabinieri in Italy. Not good enough to join the National Police or the Army so they have to put them somewhere. Give a moron a bit of authority and this is what you get. These are the same idiots who open Diplomatic baggage. . .I rest my case :(

  2. Its always the same…British drunkards, British delinquents and British hooligans disguised as tourists.
    British should be banned of traveling outside Britain
    The sooner the better
