Stranded pilgrim pensioners due home
MOST of the pensioners left stranded when Easyjet cancelled their return flight from Portugal are due home on Sunday.
The airline said all but nine of the group from the Archdiocese of St Andrews & Edinburgh, would be back in Scotland today.
A total of 83 members of the group, who had been on a religious trip to the holy site of Fatima, say they were left abandoned after an initial delay turned into a cancellation on Thursday.
And among the anxiety, one of the pensioners took ill and had to be taken to hospital.
