A scare but nothing worse as rockfall closes Mesa del Mar beach in Tacoronte

Thankfully there were no casualties, let alone worse, and we know that worse can definitely happen because two people died in a rockfall at Los Gigantes beach in 2009, but mercifully on this occasion there was just dust and a scare in a rockfall at Mesa del Mar in Tacoronte around 5pm yesterday. The following video shows the incident, after which most of the beach was closed: it will remain so until at least Monday. Tacoronte mayor Álvaro Dávila said that despite appearances, there was no actual risk because the steel netting worked perfectly, containing all the rocks that came down. The closure will be lifted once the works to remove the fallen boulders from within the netting have been completed.
