- Local mayor Juan Damian Gorrin revealed yesterday that work will begin on a stretch of 75 metres of the beach in October to shore it up against rockslides by placing steel netting on the cliffside. The work, lasting four months, is due to be completed by early 2011, although another section of the beach will be remain closed off for the time being until funding is secured to carry out similar improvements.
