Torrox councillor Paola Moreno (PP) has said she will return the 85 euros she was paid for attending a council meeting via Zoom while on a sun lounger on the beach last Monday.

Moreno also apologised and said that it "wouldn't happen again" after screenshots from the meeting were shared on social media, causing local and national controversy.

The councillor had originally defended her actions saying that other politicians attend Zoom meetings from their cars and other outdoor places.
