Island family get rescue flight home

They were stranded in Sharm el-Sheikh

An Island family say they’re ‘glad to be home’ after being caught up in the Egyptian travel chaos.

Aron Storrie from Ballasalla was on holiday in the popular Sharm el-Sheikh resort with his wife and two children when the impact of the fatal Russian airliner crash began to unfold.

Thousands of holidaymakers remain stranded there after the British government suspended all flights following security concerns.

Despite being told by their travel company they’d have to stay in Sharm until today, Aron and his family managed to board a rescue flight back.
