I know there are strikes going on in Spain at the moment,but whilst travelling to Alicante last thusday beggers belief. After landing and going through customs,the whole plane went through without showing passports to the customs officers,travelling through Europe for many years this has never happened to me before.
Quite a lot of major citys are on top alert due to an immenent terrorist alert,and after Spains last attack,i was very surprized at the lack of security.
On the upside it took 5mins from plane to outside (due to only having hand luggage)but it took about 1hr to get through at Liverpool airport,with only one man looking at passports for 6 planes all arriving at the same time.

The daft thing was as soon as we went through security?,in the arrivals area were about 10 of the biggest policemen yove seen, 3 of them had guns and 2 had dogs,just watching people go by. I found this quite strange,and i travel to Spain at least twice a year and have never found security so laxadaisy
