The mother of two young women from Stevenage in Hertfordshire who survived a shipwreck in Indonesia has spoken of her relief that they are safe.
Joan Ostojic and her husband heard in an email from 21-year-old Katherine and 19-year-old Alice how they had to sit on the roof of their semi-submerged boat for 10 hours, before swimming for another 8 hours.
They were rescued by local fishermen, and plan to return home shortly.
"It's a relief that they are safe. They are fine, carrying on with their travels and will be home shortly."
