POLICE in Mallorca have shut down a private party of 56 people.

The Guardia Civil had received multiple complaints from neighbours about the large gathering at a farm in Petra on Friday night.

Residents reported hearing loud music and seeing dozens of people congregating outside the property.

They claimed the revellers were not wearing the mandatory face masks or adhering to social distancing.

Social gatherings in Mallorca were also capped to a maximum of six people by the Balearic government last week.

Several patrols proceeded to raid the farm finding the majority of the party goers in a ‘drunken state’.

All were given a penalty of €100 before being ordered to return to their home.

It comes as Spain has enforced its second nationwide state of alarm, bringing in several new lifestyle restrictions. 

The first measure is the establishment of a nighttime curfew from 11pm to 6am. 

Residents will only be permitted to be outside for work, if they are returning home or are caring for the elderly or a dependant. 

Although regional governments can move the curfew by one hour either side, the Balearic government has chosen to keep it from 11pm to 6am. 

They have also put in place several other restrictions to halt the spread of coronavirus in the region, including a ban on the use of bar countertops to serve beverages or food to customers.
