Only two days after our Spotlight news team confidently

Only two days after our Spotlight news team confidently (some say foolishly) predicted the start and finish dates for the works to improve Ibiza town's Avenida España, news arrived which proved to be both good and bad.

The good news was that the big yellow diggers moved in exactly on time and as predicted, the bad news was that almost as soon as the first layer of tarmac was removed, human remains were discovered. Archaeologists were immediately called in to investigate, the area was cordoned off, and the improvement project will be delayed.

The first indications are that the workers have stumbled on a burial ground dating back to at least Arabic times, and the archaeologists are patiently brushing away the earth from the old bones in a hunt for clues.
