GEORGINA Forsythe from Henley faces an anxious wait to find out when her parents are coming home after fears over coronavirus trapped them and 400 other British passengers on a cruise ship.

Her mum and dad – John and Linda Langford also from Henley – set sail on a luxury cruise ship on 1st March and should have been back home on Tuesday this week but concerns over a coronavirus outbreak onboard meant port officials in both Argentina and Uruguay delayed the departure of British passengers while health checks could be done; consequently they’ve all missed their scheduled flights.

There is no virus outbreak on the ship which is now heading towards Fort Lauderdale and Georgina she still doesn’t know when her parents will be home.
