Winter warning from Spain

May 24th 2009
At the end of November an 81-year-old homeless man burnt to death in Nuevos Francos, near Salamanca. The Guardia Civil investigating believe the blaze, in the abandoned lorry cab that the man used as a shelter, was caused by a fire the man had lit to keep himself warm. Unfortunately, it's the time of year when many more readers will be harmed by the cold or efforts they take to beat it, regardless of the country. Readers are reminded of the deaths The Pavement has covered in the past - people crushed while sheltering in skips or burnt in squats. Be careful and watch out for each other.
