A Blackpool man who is due to set off on a backpacking trip to the Philippines has decided to turn his holiday into an aid mission in the wake of deadly Typhoon Haiyan.
Luke Sumner booked his trip five months ago and was due to go with his brother James, who lives in New Zealand.
Now they have decided to make their two-week holiday a humanitarian mission to help those left bereaved, injured and homeless by the storm.
And rather than clothes, the brothers will take bags full of medical supplies to help the people left with nothing.
