Brit driver sparks ter­ror fears

The Sunday Post (Newcastle) - - EXCLUSIVE -

A BRI­TISH driver sparked a ter­ror alert af­ter plough­ing into hol­i­day­mak­ers at a packed Span­ish restau­rant.

The 79-year-old ex-pat was briefly mis­taken for a ter­ror­ist af­ter smash­ing his car into ter­race ta­bles a week af­ter the at­tack in Barcelona’s Las Ram­blas.

Three peo­ple were hurt in the in­ci­dent at Los Patos restau­rant in Puerto Al­cu­dia in the north of Ma­jorca.

Two of the vic­tims, a Spa­niard and an Ital­ian, were taken to hospi­tal with light in­juries and the third suf­fered a bro­ken leg.

Four ta­bles were hit by the out-of-con­trol Re­nault Koleos. Po­lice were on the scene within min­utes and con­firmed it was a traf­fic ac­ci­dent, as restau­rant work­ers re­alised when they saw the OAP at the wheel.
