The search for missing British woman Amy Gerard has been called off after a body was found off the Tenerife coast.
The body was discovered yesterday off the coast of Puerto de la Cruz, where 28 year old Amy was last seen in the early hours of Friday.
A police spokesman said it was too early to confirm the identity of the woman.
But the search for Amy Gerard, originally of Cleethorpes, has now been called off.
The body is believed to have been spotted by a Civil Guard helicopter before being recovered by one of the boats involved in the search.
A source close to the inquiry earlier said: “The body was in a bad state.
Amy’s family who have flown to Tenerife, are thought to have been informed of the development.
The killer whale trainer was last seen enjoying herself at an Irish pub just minutes before she mysteriously disappeared.
Madrid’s city hall yesterday ordered three operators to remove their electric scooters from the streets of the capital within 72 hours, saying they had breached regulations.
The municipality said in a statement that VOI, WIND and Lime had failed to comply with rules that determine which areas the scooters are allowed to operate in.
The capital does not allow electric scooters in pedestrian areas or on roads where the speed limit is 50 kilometers an hour or more.
VOI said it was working closely with the administration to meet the rules, adding it was confident it would soon be allowed back on the streets of Madrid.
WIND and Lime, which counts Uber and Google-owner Alphabet among its investors, could not immediately be reached for comment.
Madrid’s regulations echo laws in other European cities trying to cope with the sudden influx of electric scooters, which have raised concern over the risks they can pose to pedestrians.
Security officers at Spain’s busiest airport are threatening to go on strike after claiming they’ve been given insufficient clothing to keep them warm.
Their union announced the call for a walkout from December 21 and over the Christmas period at the Adolfo Suárez Madrid Barajas airport.
The strike would affect all security officers who patrol inside and outside the airport, including around its borders.
The union says 300 workers with Eulen, which runs the service, have also not been paid a bonus as promised during early negotiations.
Air traffic experts say the strike would cause inconvenience for travellers but they do not envisage the same kind of queues that formed during a similar strike 18 months ago at El Prat airport in Barcelona.
