Demolition goes on in Lorca as Real Madrid players visit

Work to demolish unsafe buildings and remove all the rubble carries on in Lorca today, as the town prepares to receive the Real Madrid football team before their charity game against Murcia to raise money for those affected by the earthquake last week.

Some time after 8am, three buildings in the La Viña and Alfonso X districts, two of the most badly damaged areas of the town, will be pulled down on the instructions of the inspection team, which has carried out no fewer than six inspections over the past days and has come to the conclusion that the buildings cannot be saved.

Yesterday, demolition workers tried to pull down another building in the La Viña district, which ultimately collapsed, but not without causing significant damage to the neighbouring Cristo Rey church.

The Real Madrid players will visit the district of La Viña some time this morning, before heading off to Murcia to play the charity friendly at the Nueva Condomina stadium at 7pm, with the aim of raising money to help those left bereaved, injured and homeless by the disaster.

The players, with club president, Florentino Pérez, will arrive around midday and will visit the area most damaged by last Wednesday's earthquake, which left nine people dead and more than 300 injured.

After meeting some of the residents, the players will go to Lorca town hall, to take part in a symbolic act of support for the people of the town.

For their part, the residents evacuated from their homes after the earthquake spent their first night in a new camp set up in the Torrecilla sports centre.

In total, just over a thousand people have been relocated, after those who have drifted into the Lorca camps from other towns in search of free hand-outs like food, clothing, beds or tents, were sent back home.
