Divers working under instruction from the Guardia Civil have recovered over 2200 rounds of ammunition from the seabed off the coast of Alicante. The rounds were located in waters in front of Urbanova, opposite the intersection with the N-332.

The authorities began their investigations at the beginning of the month in response to “street rumours” that the seabed at this point was being used to hide “illegal items” the search was not easy, even with a good idea of the location, and finding the exact spot under the water took a painstaking operation.

The rounds were 22 and 308 calibre Luger manufactured ammunition, the authorities are not sure if they were being hidden, as the rumours had claimed, as they were found in various states of decay, indicating they had been dumped rather than hidden.
