African migrants land on beach and run off past holidaymakers

A BOATLOAD of men landed on a beach in Spain and ran off past stunned holidaymakers.

The 30 migrants, believed to be mostly sub-Saharan Africans, were filmed sprinting away on the packed beach in Cadiz, in the south of the country, after crossing undetected from Morocco to Europe on Wednesday. Their current whereabouts are unknown.

Police unions said only one officer was on the beach at the time due to a lack of resources. More than 100,000 refugees have reached Europe in the seven months to July.
