- Travel firm holding last-ditch talks to avert bankruptcy
- Up to 150,000 Britons holidaying abroad could be affected
The government and the aviation watchdog are drawing up plans for the biggest ever UK peacetime repatriation if Thomas Cook collapses, with 150,000 British customers currently on holidays overseas with the travel company.
Thomas Cook is holding last-minute talks to stave off a bankruptcy that could happen as soon as this weekend unless it secures £200m in extra funding.
