Panama band members prevented from flying home by spelling error

Three young performers at London's New Year Day Parade have been delayed from returning home to Panama because of spelling mistakes on their tickets.

The members of the marching band Banda de Musica Colegio Moisés Castillo Ocaña were initially not allowed to travel due to the spelling error.

After that was corrected, a second administration error saw them once again unable to fly home.

BBC London's Marc Ashdown spoke to the band members and Bob Bone, the organiser of the New Year's Day Parade.
