The first flights carrying British holidaymakers left stranded in Sharm el-Sheikh arrive in the UK. A total of 180 passengers made the five-and-a-half hour flight from the Red Sea resort to Gatwick Airport on easyJet Flight 9854, with Luton the next hub to receive passengers. Their arrival followed earlier confusion between British and Egyptian authorities over the timing of planned rescue flights.
