Spain sends warning to Brits over bringing in banned items

By Brett Gibbons & Gemma Jones

Spain has sent a warning to Brits looking to head there for a holiday.

The country is cracking down on certain food items being brought into the country. Holidaymakers may be disappointed to find that some popular snacks are now outlawed, reported Hull Live.

Travellers will not be allowed to take meat and dairy products into country. This includes cakes with cream and sweets containing gelatine. All food stuffs that are taken into Spain must be sealed and in original packaging, although baby milk is an exception.

The latest ruling comes as British holidaymakers have been warned not to attended "illegal parties" in Ibiza and Majorca or risk a major fine. Heavy penalties of up to 30,000 euros are being handed out to those who attend the parties, which are not allowed but are common across the islands.

There are reports of residential properties in the Majorcan capital Palma being rented out for parties through social media platforms with neighbours in the area of Santa Catalina claiming the district has become a hotbed for illegal stag and hen parties. Police are also expected to take a tough stance against illegal outdoor bottle parties, which attract massive crowds and leave authorities with hefty clean-up bills.

The British Embassy in Spain issued a warning to travellers going to the islands owing to serious accidents that have been reported. A spokesperson said: "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.

"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."

Spain is expected to be the most popular destination for UK tourists this summer. Travel trade body ABTA claimed some 29.3% of people surveyed saying they planned to visit the country this year.
