For Sale: Mercedes ML270CDi 4×4 automatic . RHD on Spanish plates. I bought this car with us when we moved here more than 10 years ago. 2003 model with 107,000 miles (171,000kms) As a second car it has had light use over here. Just passed ITV therefore valid until Aug 2020. Maintained by local garage so mechanically good and drives as you would expect a Mercedes to. But I’ll be the first to admit that externally it’s pretty battered and the paint has sun damage, however the interior is in much better shape.
Good solid car but not the prettiest one out there. 1,750 euros, but open to sensible offers as I need the parking space back, already fed up trying to juggle 3 cars in my limited parking area.

Listeria Outbreak Update: As well as issuing a national alert over the outbreak, Spain’s health ministry said it had issued alerts to EU authorities and the World Health Organization yesterday.
What’s the source? The regional government of Andalusia warned last Thursday that meatloaf or pre-cooked meat, known as carne mechada was to blame. The source has been traced to contaminated meat sold under the commercial name “la Mecha” made by Seville-based company Magrudis.
On Wednesday, health authorities widened the recall to all the products manufactured in the Magrudis factory since May 1st and have closed the plant entirely. “Obviously there was a failure to follow the established procedures,” acting health minister Maria Luisa Carcedo told reporters. “Now we need to carry out the inspections and investigations to figure out exactly where this failure took place.”
Questions are being asked as to why it took so long to raise the alarm over the outbreak and for the contaminated meat to be recalled. Regional health authorities in Andalucia admit that it was first detected on August 5th but wasn’t until August 15th that a health alert was issued.
Rubén Sánchez, head of Facua, has called for the immediate dismissal of Jesús Aguirre, Andalusia’s regional health minister, for his “disastrous mismanagement” of the outbreak. Updated full article at: Source Link
