Turkey hotelier: Tourists are not in danger here

The owner of a Turkish hotel says the country is no more dangerous “than any other place in Europe” - despite a drop in UK package holiday bookings to the country.

5 live has exclusive figures from GFK, a firm which looks at British foreign package holidays, which show a 32% drop in such bookings from the UK to Turkey from April 2015 to 2016.

Holidaymakers could be staying away as the threat of terrorism remains high, but hotel owner Halit Sertan Sarac – known as Sonny - said people in his resort of Hisarönü were "not in danger" and life was "usual" there.
