THREE bathers taking a dip in the Med in Mallorca face sanctions for violating the lockdown.
A Guardia Civil GEAS Sub-aquatic Activities Special Group patrol surprised one young man clad in a wetsuit, flippers and goggles swimming off a beach in Sa Caleta in Calvia.
It was a Guardia officer who was walking home after coming off duty who noticed a middle-aged couple having a sneaky night-time skinny-dip at Puerto de Pollensa beach.
Moments later a Guardia patrol and Pollensa Local Police showed up and told the swimmers to get out the water and get dressed. The skinny-dippers were unable to convince the officers they had not realised they were breaking the State of Alarm restrictions.
