Continual problems on the Orihuela Costa are making the headlines this week, in particular the state of some of the children´s play areas.

Inside, there´s lots more news from around the area, and the local sports, as well as all your favourite features on food, health, home, TV, travel and what´s on, not forgetting the comprehensive TV guide for the week.

Remember too, Monday is a holiday in Spain, celebrating the day of the worker, and next Sunday is Mother´s Day, this time for Spanish mums, but why not make the most of it and treat mum again.

Until next time, enjoy your week.
