AN accumulation of rubbish and an unpleasant odour are the background for sunbathers on Denia’s Playa Punta del Raset, usually the busiest beach in the town over the summer months
The offending area is a water channel that local residents think has been contaminated by a leaking septic tank.
The area in and around the channel is also full of rubbish with even a shopping trolley lying abandoned in the grass next to the ditch. Thankfully the channel does not run to the sands but the situation is far from ideal at peak season on Denia’s busiest beach. Environment Councillor Maite Perez has said the matter is under investigation.
