20 cars have already been buried by the moving Valdevaqueraos dune which has been created by high winds in the area. The sand has now closed the local CA-2325 road.

El Mundo reports that local residents have been calling for a solution to the problem for years, and say they are now trapped, unable to enter of leave the town or the beach.

The paper says the responsibility is always passed between the Ministry for Development, the Ministry for the Environment, and the local Town Hall, while the residents suffer the consequences.

The Town Hall says that it has sent an excavator to the area to clear the road. Mayor Juan Andrés Gil, expressed his concern at the situation. He said he has asked the Demarcación de Costas to draw up a technical report to diagnose what has to be done to solve the problem of the ever westward moving sand dune.
