SPAIN’S prime minister has landed in Mallorca to visit the areas affected by last night’s floods.
Conociendo desde el centro de mando las últimas noticias sobre las inundaciones en Sant Llorenç (Mallorca). Quiero transmitir nuestro agradecimiento a los servicios de emergencia, que trabajan sin descanso para atender a todos los afectados y evaluar los daños. pic.twitter.com/pgd9BJOiXL

The PSOE leader visited the eastern towns hit hardest while speaking to emergency services.
He said on Twitter: “I want to convey our gratitude to the emergency services, who work tirelessly to attend to all those affected and assess the damage.”
It’s the first crisis for the new prime minister since he took over from Mariano Rajoy earlier this year in a vote of no confidence.
A five-year-old boy is still missing and authorities say the search will continue throughout the night.
