The formal re-inauguration of the Flora Micro-reserve located below the Aguamarina promenade took place on Friday morning by the mayor, Emilio Bascuñana, and a number of his councillors including Environment, Dámaso Aparicio, Beaches, Ramón López Cabrera, and Health, José Galiano.

The project demonstrates Orihuela’s commitment to the sustainability of the environment and to preserving the region’s biodiversity with the renewal of this important micro-reserve.

The International Civil Aviation Organisation has announced that hand luggage is to be banned from the above seat compartments in aircraft, and Spanish Porn star Nacho Vidal has been charged with murder following a death in a toad-venom ritual in which toad poison was inhaled at a party in his villa, just north of Alicante.
