CDs by the Beetles.

The local police visited the Friday Mercadillo in Torrevieja , confiscated over 400 CDs and arrested two South African men. They will continue to visit the Mercadillos at La Mata and Torrievieja in an attempt to eliminate the sale of forged goods.

There are now six non-uniformed police officers in Torrevieja whose specific task is to tackle , among other things, the sale of fake items along the Paseos de La Libertad , the Vista Alegre and the beaches.

You might feel sorry for these South Africans but at the same time you do get fed up with being asked if you want a pair of hooky sunglasses or a dodgy watch every time you sit down for a drink.
