Tom’s flight today to Britain is cancelled and his calls to our embassy in Lima have not been answered. And why is that? Because the embassy itself has decided to close down for 15 days just when its services were needed most.
The secretary of state said in his statement that our consular teams are working around the clock to provide the best information to UK nationals, well I’m afraid that simply isn’t the case in Tom’s experience.
Across the world there are tens of thousands of British nationals in the same position as Thomas and all with the same message for the British government – help bring us home, as far as we’re concerned, our travel is essential.
