A CAMPING gas explosion on Rio Real beach in Marbella yesterday, Sunday July 23, has left three people injured.

The 112 Andalucía Emergency service were alerted at around 3 p.m. requesting urgent medical assistance for several people, two men and one woman, as a result of the explosion of a gas campsite.
