Crucial talks aimed at preventing the holiday giant going out of business were held throughout Sunday amid fears that tens of thousands of holidaymakers will be stranded.

British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab has assured the firm’s worried customers that contingency planning is in place in the event the business cannot be saved.
