Kenya: Hundreds of Brits flown home after bombings

Some 400 British holidaymakers have now returned to the UK from Kenya after 10 people were killed when two explosions hit the capital Nairobi.

The tourists were flown back from the East African country's other main town, Mombasa, by tour operators Thomson and First Choice.

The tour operators said that the last flight carrying British tourists back to the UK arrived at Gatwick airport last night at 10.30pm, while all outbound flights have been cancelled until 31 October.

Two clients with long-haul travel company Kuoni were also flown home yesterday, with the company not offering any more holidays to the Kenyan coast while the travel advice remains in place.
