Car leasing and scrapping: I’d be interested in any good or bad experiences, and overall impressions of good or bad value, with car leasing in Spain. As I will probably be scrapping my current car, I’d also appreciate any advice on recommended companies and the inevitable paperwork involved. All the best, Pete, Torrox

Bad Grandma:  The 76-year-old Spanish woman arrested 40 times for stealing gets caught again! Police discovered the elderly lady in possession of dozens of rental property keys, and determined she was responsible for multiple robberies in the southern city of Málaga. But when they took her fingerprints, they were shocked: Josefa had been arrested 40 times under eight different names since the 1970s!
