Thomas Cook flies 1,100 Tunisia guests back to UK early

Thomas Cook has flown more than 1,100 UK guests home early from Tunisian holidays in the last 72 hours.

Thousands of tourists have arrived back in the UK from Tunisia in the wake of Friday's attack in the resort of Sousse.

Holiday firms have scrambled extra flights on top of scheduled services for people seeking to flee back to Britain since the attack.

Thomas Cook's UK managing director, Salman Sayed, said customers who have booked trips to Tunisia can cancel their holiday until 12 July.

He added that Tunisia holiday bookings can be changed, amended or modified until 31 October – the end of the holiday season.
