Jel­ly­fish swarm closes beaches

Solihull News - - FAITH MATTERS -

FAM­I­LIES head­ing to Spain’s Costa Blanca for a get­away could see them­selves lim­ited to the ho­tel pool if they need a swim to cool down.

The beau­ti­ful coast­line is a favourite of Brits hop­ing for a sunny stay in the sun and only a two and a half hour flight from Birm­ing­ham Air­port. How­ever, hol­i­day mak­ers head­ing there may have no choice but to avoid the beach.

An in­va­sion of Por­tuguese Man O’ Wars has closed most of the re­gion’s beaches to swim­mers. The swarm of jel­ly­fish- type crea­tures can be deadly to swim­mers from the sting in their ten­ta­cles. Nearly ev­ery beach from El Cam­pello north of Ali­cante down to Pil­lar de La Ho­radada – is off lim­its.
