Tenerife News & Events (weekly)

  • "It has been brought to our attention that in the Cabildo’s Tourism & Planning Department law regulating bars and restaurants, published as decree 90/2010 on July 22 2010, certain minimum conditions are stipulated, and failure to comply could lead to inspectors charging you an on-the-spot fine of up to €3,000.

    The decree states quite clearly that you must have staff who speak Spanish. "

  • "The man accused of beheading a British grandmother in Tenerife had been treated in a psychiatric unit in north Wales, it has emerged. Deyan Deyanov was reported to be visiting relatives when he was detained for his own safety at Glan Clwyd Hospital's Ablett Unit, Denbighshire. "

  • "As a mark of respect to the family of Jennifer Mills-Westley, Tenerife Magazine will not be publishing our usual round-up of the week’s news. We feel that the semi-flippant approach we take in this feature isn’t appropriate at this time."

  • "For this month we’ve opted for a real Tenerife secret; a place that we are sure not many people, relatively speaking, have actually set foot in."

  • "Although the ability to speak the lingo when holidaying, or indeed living, on Tenerife – particularly in the main resorts of the island – has never been a major handicap, nevertheless, a little Spanish can go a long way."

  • "It’s very easy to summarise Tenerife’s weather for the coming week – it’s going to be hot and sunny across the island for most of the week."

  • "The source added that Valentinov had a history of violent crimes and in February was released from a psychiatric hospital after a random attack in Los Cristianos.

    He was well-known in the area. Residents said he would walk around the resort shouting: “I have been sent by God to carry out his justice on earth.”

    Local reports said he suffered from paranoid schizophrenia and sometimes could not afford to buy his medicine.

    Valentinov had been living surrounded by rubbish and debris in a derelict house on Los Cristianos beach along with other squatters."

  • "Horrified witnesses reported seeing the killer run out of a supermarket in the Valdes shopping centre on Avenida Juan Carlos in Los Cristianos on the Spanish resort island, carrying Jennifer Mills-Westley's head and saying "God is on earth" before being tackled by security guards."
