A stranger has paid for a British woman on holiday in Majorca to fly home after hearing she would run out of heart medication if her return flight with Thomas Cook was cancelled amid the operator's financial strife.
The man, named only as Colin, stepped in after he heard of Jackie Ward's plight in a Sky News interview from her holiday resort.
Jackie and her daughter Amy from Newcastle, arrived there in the last week for a celebratory holiday after Jackie was given the all-clear from cancer.
Before Colin's intervention, they said the trip had been "ruined" as Jackie has a heart condition and had only enough of her daily medication to last until Sunday.
They had been concerned their flights would not materialise as the travel agent's crisis has worsened in recent days.
The mother and daughter are among about 150,000 UK holidaymakers who have travelled with the 178-year-old travel agency.
The firm has tried to calm customers' fears, insisting all its holidays and flights are operating as normal.
