The European Commission on Friday announced that it is taking Greece to court over its failure to impose legislation for the protection of the Caretta-caretta loggerhead sea turtle, an endangered species that is endemic to the southern Ionian Sea and which nests there.

The case specifically concerns Kyparissia Bay in the Western Peloponnese, one of the most important nesting sites for loggerhead turtles in the Mediterranean, and an area protected under EU legislation.

A town centre building once home to troubled poet has collapsed.

It came down moments after a structural engineer on a cherry picker prodded at an exposed beam and bricks near to the roof.
