A former serviceman with a terminal illness has had his "bucket list" river cruise cancelled by a holiday company in St Austell at the last minute.
Barry Ironton and his wife Linda, from Helston, paid more than £2,000 to Hamilton Coach Holidays for a cruise along the River Danube.
The couple were due to leave early on Monday morning, but over the weekend they "received a scrap of paper" saying their trip had been cancelled.
Mr Ironton says he drove to the office in St Austell twice, but it was closed and he was unable to speak to anyone.
However he has since received an email from the company owner assuring him they would get a refund.
Mr Ironton says he feels let down as he hoped for one final holiday.
Linda Ironton says she feels for her husband.
Cornwall Council says its Trading Standards officers are aware of some customers' concern about their holiday bookings with Hamilton’s Coach Holidays Ltd.
ITV West Country has approached Hamilton Coach Holidays for a comment, and is waiting for a response.
