Kevin and Kerry Shippey were among the 214 passengers on the Thomas Cook flight due to fly home from Zante to Stanted airport on Sunday.

They described the experience as a ‘nightmare’ after witnessing one passenger have a fit as temperatures inside the plane – stuck on the island’s runway for more than three hours – rose to well over 30 degrees centigrade.
