Bodies Of Tunisia Dead Return To UK

A flight containing the bodies of eight Britons killed by a gunman in the Tunisian beach massacre has begun its journey to the UK.

The C-17 military transport aircraft left Tunis airport bound for Brize Norton in Oxfordshire.

The flight, which will arrive at about 3pm, contains the bodies of Adrian Evans, Charles Evans, Joel Richards, Carly Lovett, Stephen Mellor, John Stollery, and Denis and Elaine Thwaites, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) said.

The flight set off as Prime Minister David Cameron told MPs that 27 British nationals had been confirmed dead.

But that figure is expected rise as 30 Britons are believed to be among the 38 shot dead by student Seifeddine Rezgui, 23, at the beach resort of Sousse on Friday.
