A GROUP of holidaymakers were back in Huddersfield from Cyprus today, 24 hours after they feared they would be stranded for two weeks.
The party were flown home a day late after an Easyjet plane bringing them back to Manchester developed technical problems near the island of Rhodes and had to turn back.
The tired holidaymakers had been left to fend for themselves at Paphos airport on Cyprus and find a hotel to stay for the night on Wednesday.
They were then told that it could be September 6 before another aircraft would be available to take them home.
But last night another plane arrived and they were flown back into Manchester this morning.
The tourists had complained that no-one from Easyjet had been there to help them find emergency accommodation.
An Easyjet spokesman apologised for the problems and said the company would meet all the costs of the extra stay.
