Authorities undermining tourist industry

Tourists coming to visit the old harbour have been seen covering their noses and leaving.

The sewage pumping station in Kyrenia old harbour is still out of commission, following the electricity supply being cut off as bills remained unpaid.

Since then, there has been a running battle between Kyrenia council and the government as to who owns the pumping station and who should pay the bills.

In the meantime, sewage has now started to flow into the harbour and the area is beginning to smell.

A stop gap measure of vacuuming up the sewage is not proving successful.
