Travellers told to prepare for standstill in France

British holidaymakers are braced for half-term misery as fuel strikers threaten to bring French roads to a standstill - while the country's striking air traffic controllers cause havoc for Brits trying to fly to France, Spain, Portugal, Italy and Switzerland.

Ninety flights cancelled so far and French protesters have clashed with police in several cities. Bridges and motorways have been blockaded and power cuts are threatened as widespread civil unrest grips the country.

Flights to and from Paris, Nantes and Toulouse have been affected, and a rolling strike by train drivers has brought further disruption to regional and commuter rail services.

Good Morning Spain!

Is the sun about to set on Britain's love affair with Spain?

Kate joins us live from the European Union's fifth largest economy, Spain, where she's talking to some of the one million British expats who relocate there every year.

They all agree that the Spanish sunshine is great, but now they face fear, confusion and uncertainty ahead of the EU referendum. David Cameron has said holidays to Europe could cost £230 more on average if we leave the EU because of a weaker pound, increased air fairs and higher phone bills

The expats Kate spoke to are split on a Brexit decision - some are proud to be EU citizens and others believe Britain could survive solo once more. However, concerns around healthcare and pensions remain pertinent.

Despite having 700 Facebook friends, the Staffordshire-Bull cross, who suffers with epilepsy, is looking for a "patient, experienced home".

We think Ranvir might be tempted...

Till deaf do us part

Mother-of-three Louise Windsor has been deaf all her life and lived in virtual silence for more than 40 years.

However, thanks to a pioneering cochlear implant - a small hearing device fitted under the skin - Louise can now hear her children's voices and engage verbally in longer conversations.
