John and Jean Oliver, long time visitors to Tenerife, were returning to Reina Sofia Airport on 16th March following a month’s stay at Los Gigantes. They parked their hire car in a car park at Los Abrigos whilst they had lunch at one of the popular sea-front restaurants.
On return to the car, they discovered that that the vehicle had been entered and various items removed from the locked boot including their passports, a laptop computer, their UK car keys and several other personal items.
The Oliver’s travel mascot – a cuddly baby gorilla called “Bruno” was in the stolen travel bag and is, therefore, also missing. Bruno has travelled for over 20 years all over the world with John & Jean and is sorely missed. If you come across him, please contact losgigantes.com – a reward payment is possible.
The moral of this story is, of course, never leave your passports & other valuables in your car – always take them with you!
The work has a budget of around Euros 202,000
The incident occurred around 3pm. The man, who name has not yet been disclosed, was in his early 40’s. He complained of chest pains then lost consciousness. A nurse on board was unable to revive him and he was pronounced dead when the emergency services arrived.
A second blackout in just over a week, hit not just Los Gigantes but the whole of Tenerife for several hours early this morning.
The problem occurred at 1am at a sub-station in Las Caletillas. 50% of power was restored by around 5am to Santa Cruz and the south of the islands. Full power should be resumed during the course of today.
The emergency services had few serious incidents to deal with because the blackout occurred during the night, but a few people had to be rescued from lifts.
