A Norwich man who was on holiday in Tunisia when a gunman ran amok killing 38 people has launched an appeal to help the tourist industry there.
Among those who died was Philip Heathcote from Felixstowe in Suffolk and Stuart Cullen, who lived in Lowestoft. With tour operators taking holidaymakers there from all over the region, hundreds from the east flew back in the days that followed.
Nathan Priestley was one of those but he initially gave up his flight to allow others to come home first. The extra time he spent there gave him an insight into just how tough it was going to be for the Tunisian Hotel workers who rely on the tourism trade.
