The Guardia Civil has located 19 people who were illegally camping on the Arrieta coast, in the Lanzarote municipality of Haría. Others ran away before agents arrived.

When the officers approached the area on foot, at 7:30am this morning, several of the group fled, while others began dismantling the tents.

In total the police identified 19 people between the ages of 15 and 20, thirteen of them minors.

All were sitting around in a group, and beer cans, bottles of alcohol, deckchairs, refrigerators, and remains of toilet paper were scattered over the beach, and none were complying with the security measures against coronavirus, or wearing masks.

Police broke the group up and have ordered the area to be cleared, taking the 19 away for further questioning.
