Torremolinos Council has opened an investigation into the appearance of rubbish and debris at La Carihuela beach.
Plastic bottles, napkins and other objects arrived at La Carihuela. The water company say it has not identified any malfunction which would cause such an incident and there is speculation that it could have drifted in with the current from neighbouring Benalmádena. It is also thought likely that the rubbish could have been deliberately dumped from a boat.
There was no human waste involved.
