Travel advice to Spain unchanged in wake of Majorca bombs

The Foreign Office (FCO)is not changing its advice to holidaymakers travelling to Majorca in the wake of yesterday’s  bomb attacks.

The advice to holidaymakers is to be wary but not to change travel plans despite three bomb explosions in Palma de Majorca.

On Sunday the first bomb exploded in the toilet of a bar restaurant called La Rigoletta while a second bomb is reported to have been found in another restaurant and detonated by bomb disposal experts. A third, according to reports exploded in a town square.

There were no reports of injuries as everyone had been evacuated from the restaurant and the area closed by police.

Basque separatist group ETA is thought to be responsible for the bombings.  The terrorist group admitted responsibility for a bomb attack in Majorca on July 30 which killed two Civil Guard officers.

Thomson and First Choice say normal conditions apply to Majorca bookings, with holiday and flight programme unaffected by events. The TUI Travel owned companies are liaising with the FCO, British Consulate and the local authorities.
