  • The council has suggested that it could give grants out to local organisations and community groups who have recently been taking the matter into their own hands

In a bid to stave off complaints about the cleanliness and the state of repair of the town, Torremolinos council has suggested that it could give grants out to local organisations and community groups who have recently been taking the matter into their own hands.

Councillors will consider paying for materials for do-gooder painters, repairers and cleaners, as well as insurance.

Opposition parties have heavily criticised the idea, claiming it is not a serious solution to the problem.
