Benidorm ‘safer’ than UK says expat – big differences between Spain & Britain covid rules

Musician Martin Weavers, 60, moved to Benidorm three years ago, “giving everything up in England” to be lead singer of The Rollermaniacs band, a tribute to The Bay City Rollers.

While Covid has meant less work for entertainers like Martin, the expat reckons he’s safer out in Benidorm.

“I think being in Benidorm is safer than being in England,” the singer told

He believes this is thanks to Spain’s strict approach to face masks.

“I think the wearing of masks should be compulsory everywhere and most people in Benidorm are wearing them,” he said.

“When you look at news clips in England it makes me sad that people are not wearing them.”
