Investigators are scouring the terrain in Calpe searching for clues that might lead them to uncover the culprits behind a dangerous sabotage of the train from Denia to Alicante.
Screws and stones were viciously lodged between two lanes of the railway track in a sadistic attempt to wreak maximum damage.
Luckily the driver had his wits about him and stopped the train after he noticed it quite literally jumped off the tracks for a split second. Experts have concluded that, if not for his preventative action, the train quite possibly could have derailed causing significant casualties or worse.
Investigators quickly realised this might not be an isolated event and issued a full scale search of adjacent rail lines and tracks. To their horror they discovered further sabotage on the Benissa-Teulada-Calpe-Ferrandet line.
Teams were dispatched to remove the threat and now the search continues for those responsible.
