Flyglobespan passengers stranded abroad


Arrangements are being made to fly home more than 4,000 people stranded abroad after the collapse of the Scottish airline Flyglobespan.

Thousands of others who'd been planning to travel over the Christmas period, have had their plans ruined, but many will be protected by the travel industry insurance scheme or by credit card cover.

Passengers are stranded in holiday resorts across Spain, Portugal, Cyprus and Egypt.

Christian Fraser reports from the tourist destination of Hurghada in Egypt.
