OLIVE PRESS reader, Gary Cummings, of Formentera del Segura, sent us this dramatic picture of what he describes as ‘The Leaning Tower of Guardamar’.

Cummings owns Your Holiday Bike in nearby Benijofar and was on one of his regular rides from the mouth of the Segura River at Guardamar along to La Mata, when he saw the devastation caused by Storm Gloria, this week.

He described the scene, “The watchtower was just left balancing on what was left of its foundations – it did look dangerous.”
