No flight for schoolgirls stuck in New York

The 38 schoolgirls stuck in New York on a school trip still do not know when they will be able to fly home.

They are unable to travel to Washington to catch their flight as public transport has ceased to operate until further notice following the devastation of superstorm Sandy.

The girls have been 'doubling up' in their hotel rooms and have each been given $40 by the school for food.

The children have each had their clothes washed at a local launderette.
