Six held as other occupants of empty patera spotted off El Médano are sought

Police say that six men have been detained this morning after an empty patera was spotted around 8am off the coast at El Médano. The six will only be part of the total number of occupants in the craft so the search continues for others who are hoped to have made it to safety and dry land. Medical assessments are currently being carried out on the six who have been held.
