Police and cleaning reinforcement to avoid the nuisance of botelleo in La Manga
The City Council of Cartagena has reinforced this weekend the police surveillance and cleaning tasks on the beaches of La Manga and La Azohía to try to minimise as much as possible the nuisance generated by the young people who are drinking from bottles on the beaches of La Manga and La Azohía.
The Department of Public Safety, headed by Juan Pedro Torralba, has reinforced the police operation in this part of the coast, with extraordinary surveillance in the area around the Vivero and Levante beaches in La Manga to try to dissuade concentrations of people from consuming alcohol on the public highway. In addition, there have also been extraordinary reinforcements in the city centre of Cartagena.
The night has developed with few incidents of note, and the Local Police have interposed on the night of Saturday 4 September a total of 9 complaints for alcohol consumption on public roads on different beaches and in the city, and 26 complaints for noise on public roads.
For its part, the Department of Infrastructures, directed by María Casajus, has set up a reinforcement operation so that from 6:00 in the morning the beaches are cleaned of the remains of rubbish generated by the botelleos, so that at dawn the beaches are clean and free of rubbish, and minimise as far as possible the effects of this type of concentrations for the rest of the population.
The mayoress, Noelia Arroyo, thanked the Local Police for the operation deployed, as well as acknowledging the efforts of the municipal brigades in the cleaning tasks. Arroyo appealed to the responsibility of the young people and their civic-mindedness, reminding them that “the consumption of alcohol on public roads is prohibited. The rest of the citizens who enjoy our beaches do not have to suffer the consequences of the uncivic acts of young people”.
