HOLIDAY TURNS INTO HORROR DAY
THEIR loved ones had expected to welcome them home in a few days after a holiday in the sun in Tunisia.
Instead, eight British holiday- makers have been returned in coffins, flown home in a military plane, after being slaughtered by gunman Seifeddine Rezgui six days ago.
On board were the bodies of Adrian Evans, 49, his father Patrick Evans, 78, and Adrian’s nephew Joel Richards, 19; fashion blogger Carly Lovett, 24; Stephen Mellor, 59; social worker John Stollery, 58; and Denis Thwaites, 70, and his wife Elaine, 69.
Joel’s mother, Suzanne Richards, said: “We’re a small and normal family, but nothing will be normal again. My son Joel, dad Pat and brother Adrian were our rocks … we’ll never get over losing them. As a nation we must fight this evil together and smile for Joel, Ade, Pat.”
BODIES HOME: The coffin of Denis Thwaites is taken from an RAF C- 17 aircraft after the journey from Tunisia.
