We have had a few reports of gypsy type looking women selling flowers in La Cala, they keep you talking and pick your pockets and handbags. there seems to be more than normal. Please beware and pass the message on. Take a photo of them if you get chance, we will publish.

    They just did me for 250e yesterday. Came up on my 1st day here as I walked back from the shop with arms full of bags. Shoved a flower in my trouser pocket for no more than a few seconds, kept me talking saying it was a special holy month etc. I could feel my wallet in my trousers so didn’t think anything unusual was happening. When I got home my wallet was fine but the 250e had gone. They are very good at distraction technique. I’m gutted. Off to the police now. Two women wearing colourful skirts with black tops. Watch out.
