D-Day bus tour veterans stranded





A tour company has said it is still trying to make arrangements to get D-Day veterans from Scotland to commemorations in France this weekend.

At least three veterans had been due to travel in a party of about 18 people organised by European Battlefield Tours Limited of Glasgow.

But the firm swapped the bus it was using at the last minute because it feared the driver may have swine flu.

The replacement bus it booked then broke down.

The company said that if it could not get the veterans to Normandy by Saturday for the 65th anniversary celebrations it would try to take them later in the week to other places they had been to, following the invasion.
