A TOP Balearic politician is accused of accepting a bribe of an €800 ticket for a crucial Barcelona Champions League game.

‘BRIBE’ claim: Politician under fire for allegedly taking Barca ticket

PP MPs say Bartomeu Escandell, head of Formentera government’s tax office, took a free ticket from water company Aqualia.

The firm charges the island’s 13,000 inhabitants the most expensive water bills in Spain.

The average price of water in Formentera is €3.73 per square meter, much higher than second-placed Murca, which charges €2.92.

Under Balearic government rules, politicians shouldn’t accept ‘free tickets to events that are open to the public’.

The government has denied Escandell did anything wrong.
