Being treated as an act of vandalism, local police in Torrevieja are investigating the appearance of hundreds of used cigarette tips found this week dumped on the road outside the business premises of the former mayor Eduardo Dolón´s father.

The pile of butts appeared on Calle Joaquin Chapaprieta, outside the premises which have been closed for many years, just days after the new mayor of the city was inaugurated, replacing Eduardo Dolón. A street cleaner removed the mess.
