Spanish navy vessel spotted off Sandy Bay

The Spanish navy patrol vessel Relampago was spotted in the area off Sandy Bay on Friday afternoon. 

The vessel was seen in close proximity to the shore, with many pleasure craft users also in the area at the time.

Although the Convent says it has not yet received a report on the incident, the Gibraltar squadron can be seen approaching the Relampago, and later escorting it out of Gibraltar waters. 

GBC is currently awaiting a reply from the Convent regarding the Relampago's presence.
