Officers visited leisure venues in the city’s ‘English’ zone of Rincon de Loix.

The Policia Nacional said the operation was about visitors ‘enjoying their holidays safely’ inspections carried out at venues across the city.

Officers dropped in on two businesses suspected of illegally employing workers and permitting drug sales and consumption on the premises.

Seven sanctions were issued for allowing drug taking and also seven sanctions for irregular employment.

Two citations were also logged for what police called ‘a very serious infringement’ of Valencian regional laws over the use of public premises.
