Local police in Marbella to take to the air in paramotors

  • Two motorised paragliders have been purchased by the council

Local Police in Marbella have been bought two motorised paragliders by town councillors so they can patrol from the skies.

The idea was originally floated last year, however there was initial resistance from Malaga airport bosses over a possible danger to aircraft.

Now the equipment has been bought and is expected to be used to patrol beaches at busy times of year, oversee traffic problems and look for missing people.
