Now rare sighting of cayuco with illegal immigrants this afternoon in Las Galletas


We can probably count on one hand the number of cayucos or pateras that have arrived in the Canaries over the last three years, but one arrived with 26 illegal immigrants on board shortly after 5.30pm this afternoon. It was intercepted near Las Galletas harbour and has been towed to Los Cristianos. All on board are said to have been in good health. The above video was filmed by Julie Mayberry, and shows the lifeboat and the Guardia Civil launch towing the cayuco to Los Cristianos.
