The Real Torrevieja

Well done Amanda Payne for your very unbiased opinion re the Trevor McDonald programme on crime in Torrevieja. I was furious when I watched it especially as it did not show anything like the real Torrevieja. Are all the English press jealous or what? I have lived here nine years and yes I too have had my car stolen but the police found it in half an hour and were very helpful. The latest statistics for Europe show Spain and Germany to be the two safest places to live. Can we not invite the I.T.N team back for a week's holiday and we can show them the good side of Torrevieja?
The many people who work so hard to raise money for charity. The wonderful integration of all European nations living together, the fine service of the hospitals and all the fun there is to be had here. But I suppose that is only good news so wouldn't be published!! I, for one, am here to stay as I would rather walk along Torrevieja seafront at 10'oclock at night than any sea front in Britain.
One last word about the loud music situation, we live in Calas Blancas and have two bars both well used and the music always stops at midnight and is never too loud. If certain people don't like it then they should go back to England where everything is closed by 10 o'clock at night. This is Spain and we enjoy the Spanish way of life, Live and let live within reason.
