Spain warns partying British holidaymakers that they could face £85,000 fine

It's almost summer! And that means Brits will be jetting off around the world to soak up some sunshine.

One popular destination is Spain as it's not too far away and is a stunning country.

However, Brits could be facing a hefty £85,000 fine if they break a rule while visiting some of the Spanish islands this summer.

British travellers have been warned not to attend "illegal parties" on the party islands of Ibiza and Majorca or risk a major fine.

A spokesperson told Birmingham Live : "There have been a number of serious accidents involving people attending irregular commercially promoted parties in villas and private homes on the islands of Ibiza and Majorca.

"Licensed clubs and bars are required to meet safety and security standards, including emergency exits and capacity limits, and to have trained, licensed security staff. Irregular commercial parties may not meet these standards. "

The government added: "You should take care of your belongings, ensure you know where emergency exits are located and not take unnecessary risks. Heavy fines may be imposed by local authorities to anyone attending irregular commercial parties."

It comes as the Balearic councillor for the Presidency, Mercedes Garrido, and the president of the Council of Ibiza, Vicent Mari, presented the new rules that will come into force this summer to put a stop to illegal parties.

These have increased in the last two years with the closure of nightclubs due to the pandemic.

Among the main new features, landlords who rent out properties where these parties are held will also be fined between 100,000 and 300,000 euros, as they will be held responsible for them.

Another new factor is that the fines will reach the attendees, who will be fined between 300 and 30,000 euros depending on the seriousness of their infringement.
