The poll will then be used to send a strong letter to the Mayor of Benidorm calling for immediate action to tackle the problem.

A representative of UK Airport Car Parks recently visited Benidorm and was shocked at how serious the problem was. After speaking to some holidaymakers, he found people were now being put off from visiting the seaside resort with many saying they will not return. Within hours of being in Benidorm, the representative witnessed three police officers and an ambulance attend a victim who had been mugged, in broad daylight. When speaking to some of the crowd who were watching, the representative was told this was a common occurrence, and the Mayor of Benidorm had no interest.

The spokesman for UK Airport Car Parks said: "Our representative was shocked at what he saw. He was even more shocked when residents said it happened all the time, but the police and the Mayor were not interested."

The number of UK visitors to Benidorm could reduce due to the large number of complaints of pickpockets, Pea Men, and muggings. Many fans of the popular Spanish holiday destination have said they will not return until police and the Mayor of Benidorm take action.

A march took place this year to calling on action to be taken to reduce the crime rate, and even though it was headline news around the world, the Mayor of Benidorm has taken no action to take measures to reduce the crime.

UK Airport Car Parks intends to send the poll to all the leading UK travel agents and the Mayor of Benidorm, calling for action to be taken.
