I'm far from an expert but what good does it do closing at 12:00?

There is a police roadblock by Tamarells restaurant and they are stopping vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians. They advised us to return "to your abode"

Are people still allowed to travel to the airport and catch a flight home?
Are there any scheduled or rescue flights back to the UK?

There's scant information on any official websites.

Mike - I Googled 'rescue flights from majorca'. The search result directed me to a specific page on the Easyjet website which states that they will be laying in such flights over the next few days, and instructions as to how to get booked on one of them. Don't know about getting to the airport..

@Teacu

Thank you. I was mostly asking for people still out in PP and if there's any information on the ground about travel to the airport, if possible, and the flights.
I'm not currently out, just trying to gather information re the shutdown.

I've heard that there is still a reduced number of scheduled flights planned to Ireland,as well as some rescue flights, but only until Thursday.

Buses are running but on a reduced timetable, i have no info on taxis but i believe if you can prove your journey is essential then you are allowed to travel.

I will try to get some info re taxis.

Tonight at 8 pm most of our neighbours and us were out on our balconies clapping in support of the health workers, it was emotional but also quite uplifting to see the community coming together. We will get through this.

It was very uplifting to see the applause and the response of the health workers themselves.

There has been various vids on FB of singing from balconies in Italy and Spain, applauded by all. However I have also seen a vid from Germany where neighbours were calling the police about the disturbance Ha Ha!!

Keep your peckers up folks, we are all in this mess wherever you are in the world. Stay safe and healthy.

I think taxis are operating but check the price before travelling as I have seen reports of inflated fares

Default Day 2 of the lock down.

So we are into day 2.

Colin went shopping and said all was quiet and orderly in Hyper Centro. We are only going out for food shopping and only buying what we need on a daily basis . I will brave the rubbish run this evening .

Unfortunately have heard reports that some are being greedy .

On the bright side we have plenty of wine and spirits in stock and at least we have each other , i really feel for those living alone .

My Easyjet flight back to Gatwick tomorrow afternoon was cancelled an hour ago, but I was offered a new one, with Easyjet, leaving just after 9pm tomorrow evening. All checked in and fingers crossed for now.
