More Brits inconvenienced by Greeks having homes destroyed

British holidaymakers in Corfu are the latest to have a less than idyllic experience as wildfires rip through the Islanders’ houses, farms and olive groves. Some Brits were inconsolable having lost three days of a fortnight’s vacation while locals lost their livelihoods.

The fires on Corfu follow those on the neighbouring island of Rhodes that is only about 700 miles away. There, some British people were forced to move to temporary accommodation, described as ‘a living nightmare’ by Terry Hobbs of Basingstoke.

‘These fires that have devastated mountain villages and destroyed local communities have ruined my family holiday’ he said. ‘Here I can’t even get a pint of Carling and a Full English first thing in the morning’.
