MADRID — The civil guard said 12,832 illegal buildings have been uncovered across Spain in just over 18 months.

The worst areas were Tenerife, Malaga and Murcia – which are all popular with expats.

This meant on average 24 illegal buildings went up every day.

They included homes built in the middle of roads, villas constructed in natural parks and wells opened up illegally to get the water.

The civil guard's nature protection service said they had arrested 239 people in connection with the illegal building between January 2005 and June this year.

Other areas where illegal building was rife were Gran Canaria, Granada, Caceres and La Coruña.
