A BRITISH-RUN restaurant has found its entrance blocked by ‘two truck-loads of rubble’ over a land dispute in Javea.
Paul Kingham came outside to find the truck dumping industrial waste in broad daylight in front of paying customers at the Lounge Bar.
It comes after a Spanish neighbour claimed he owned part of the car park of the restaurant.
Kingham, 47, said it started when the irate neighbour ‘pushed’ Kingham’s freshly-laid gravel off the thin plot.
“He then came in demanding 150,000 for its sale,” Kingham told the Olive Press.
“After a second demand of 400-a-month rental was refused, he tipped two truck loads of rubble on the meagre five-metre strip of land.
“I told him I can’t afford his stupid amounts of money so he retaliated with soil and boulders.”
He added that Novas Restaurant, which is attached to the Lounge bar, and owned by Kingham, still has road access through an opening on a parallel street.
“It’s bullying, and I don’t want to get into a game of it,” Kingham said.
He has now taken matters to the police.
