Five men, believed to be Moroccan, and one Spanish man were arrested by the Marine Division of the police on Wednesday afternoon, most for entering Gibraltar without a valid permit and one for assisting others to enter another state.

The officers had believed a small cabin cruiser off Rosia Point was in difficulties and went to assist; however, the navigator was initially uncooperative and they boarded to investigate.
