A number of people may be returning to Britain to face hefty car park fines following delayed flights, it has been claimed.

The Trading Standards Institute (TSI) has suggested that the law will not be on the side of these individuals and money may have to be paid to prevent further legal action.

Many Britons have been stranded abroad as airline services were suspended because of an ash cloud caused by an erupting volcano in Iceland.

The amount that these people owe could therefore cause significant financial worry.

Ron Gainsford, chief executive of the TSI, said: “These are highly exceptional circumstances and the last thing passengers will need after these stressful delays is more extra costs they hadn’t anticipated or budgeted for.”

ABTA, the Travel Association, recently urged holidaymakers affected by the flight cancellations to get in touch with their insurance providers for the latest information on what they are or are not covered for in these circumstances.
