UK did nothing for stranded tourists, so guy organises his own flight!

Private individual organises charter flight from Cambodia to get stranded UK tourists home

A UK citizen in Cambodia has intervened to organise a private charter flight to take 103 stranded UK tourists home, after claims that the UK Embassy and UK government “could not have done less to help”.

I believe all the embassy did was offer to send a tweet out to make sure the plane was full, incredible!

Well done to the man who organised it all, great effort. :bow:

This was posted by the Australian Embassy in Cambodia. I have not found any further official source of this information...
