The Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA) has issued the following advice to holidaymakers caught up in the Tunisian terror attack.

In a statement it said: "We continue to liaise with our Members, the Tunisian Authorities and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office concerning the welfare of holidaymakers in Tunisia and the most appropriate actions to take.

"The first priority is the welfare of holidaymakers in the hotels affected by this terrible incident and extra flights have been put on to help people return home.

"Holidaymakers elsewhere in Tunisia are advised to contact their tour operator and follow any instructions issued by local authorities.

"Many of our Members who have operations in Tunisia are offering customers the option to amend or cancel their bookings.

"Customers due to travel out in the next two days are advised to contact their tour operator for their options.

"Those due to travel after this are advised to wait for further information as phone lines are likely to be very busy.

"The Foreign Office has set up an emergency number for friends and family of those who may have been affected: 020 7008 0000.

"We will continue to liaise with the appropriate authorities and update our advice accordingly."
