David Cameron stung by jellyfish in Lanzarote
Apr 21st, 2014 by elisa

David Cameron suffered a painful sting from a jellyfish while on his Easter holiday with his family in Lanzarote

Reports state that Cameron was warned by locals about the dangers of jellyfish, and even though he got his children out of the waves, he returned for another swim off the popular Arrieta beach.

Tourists described how he came running from the water a short time later, rubbing his arm shouting: “Ouch! Ouch! Ouch!”

Wendy, an ex-pat who has lived at the Canary Island resort for 12 years, described the type of jellyfish as “a reddy colour, quite small but with very long tentacles”.

The sting, although painful, was reported to be pretty minor and did not require treatment.

This incident just goes to show that it’s probably wise to heed the warnings of locals when on holiday in an area you don’t know very well.

The UK Prime Minister, David Cameron, has travelled with his family to Lanzarote in the Canary Islands for the Easter holidays.

The Camerons are understood to be taking a self-catering vacation at a holiday villa in the centre of the island, just outside of San Bartolome.

Spanish police sources confirmed to local media that there is a security plan in place for the PM’s visit to the volcanic island, one of the most popular of winter sun destinations.

The visit looks set to do wonders for tourism as Director of Lanzarote’s tourist board, Hector Fernandez, said the PM’s visit was an “important pat on the back” for Lanzarote’s reputation as a holiday destination.

Here at Villaseek we have lots of holiday villas on Lanzarote, and across the Canary Islands. Whatever your political bent, there’s no denying the beauty of the place as a great choice for a holiday!
