Two small boats with at least 13 people on board have arrived at Playa Chica in Puerto de Santiago, all the people onboard were men over 18 years old.

The alert was given around 6:00am by several residents of the area who spotted the boats on the coast.

The beach has been closed off until the boat can be removed, and the beach cleaned in-line with Covid-19 protocols.

The occupants of the boats are being properly cared for by the emergency services, and are said to be in good health, so none had to be transferred to health centres.
