A cancelled contract between holiday firm TUI and a Greek hotel has led to heartbreak for dozens of brides and grooms.

Emily Dabinett-Jones, 23, was among over 40 women who spent £10,000 on their special day next year at the Atlantica Holiday Village on the island of Kos.

But Miss Dabinett-Jones became concerned when the venue stopped appearing on TUI's website, The Sun reports.

After waiting to hear back from TUI, she decided to take action and contacted the hotel directly.

Miss Dabinett-Jones says she was told that the hotel was involved in negotiations with TUI as their contract had expired.
