The Saint: Las Palmas Vs Deportivo La Coruna

    – 30/10/17 – Images courtesy of UDLasPalmas.es LP entertain Deportivo after more disappointment away to Villarreal last weekend losing 4-0.

LP our still 3rd from bottom in La Liga but a win tonight would move them above tonight’s opponents. 5mins in and first attack by LP, ball gets played to Remy but his shot hits the side netting at the near post. Another bright move follows by LP, Remy...

Four men arrested, suspected of gang-raping a drunken tourist last year

The Judicial Police Team (EPJ) and the Guardia Civil of Puerto Rico-Mogán, have this week detained four men with the initials ME, AA, IY and BA, aged between 26 and 32, as the suspected perpetrators of a heinous sexual assault and abuse carried out in the early hours of December 26, 2016 at a southern shopping and leisure centre on Gran Canaria . The investigation began as a result of the victim’s report of a crime, filed the same day, stating that an individual had raped her, after driving her to the back of a public place. After that first attack, a second man stood behind her and holding her tightly also tried to rape her, but the victim managed to keep up an intense struggle until she was able to flee. The investigators initiated an investigation based on the victim´s own statement; leading them to obtain security recordings that could verify her version of events. However, they discovered that the reality was quite different from that reported by the victim. The study and analysis of security recordings revealed that the victim had borne a far greater burden than she had believed, as that night five men had sexually assaulted her. The investigators have discovered evidence that the first aggressor isolated the victim, who was in a serious state of diminished physical abilities due to excessive consumption of alcohol and that despite expressing their negative and firm opposition to having sexual relations, he forced...

From Tuesday a mid-Atlantic storm expected over the Azores, looks likely to pull a mixture of humidity from the Mediterranean and then Saharan dust from our nearest desert neighbours that looks set to push thermometers up towards an unseasonal 29˚C in the shade, according to the Spanish State...
