Migrants surprise sunbathers by rushing onto Spanish beach

A dinghy carrying dozens of migrants landed on Wednesday in the middle of a beach full of holiday makers in Zahara de los Atunes on the coast of Andalusia, southern Spain.

A video taken by a shocked tourist shows the boat coming up behind a man and a child having a swim in the sea. However, Italian authorities are finally taking some action to turn back migrant boats whilst they are still in Libyan waters - despite threats from Libyan warlords - and to do something about the so-called rescue ships which have been helping people-smugglers to ferry migrants into Sicily.

One person can be heard asking: 'What's going on?'

Heavy police and coastguard patrols have in recent times forced migrants to use the much longer and more hazardous route from Mauritania to the Canary Islands, but lately there has been an upsurge in crossings via the Strait of Gibraltar. What did we do to get this negative image?

Local newspaper Diario De Cadiz reports that many of those on board quickly changed their clothing to evade the police, who carried out searches to apprehend the suspected illegal migrants.

Every year, thousands of sub-Saharan African migrants living illegally in Morocco try to scale the border fences surrounding Ceuta and Melilla, Spain's other North African enclave, in a bid to enter Europe.
