Hundreds of British tourists are being evacuated on chartered flights from Kenya’s coast after the Foreign Office warned them to leave because of terror threats.

Holidaymakers with Thomson and First Choice were told that their dream long-haul trips were being cut short and that they should pack and prepare to travel to the airport in convoys of coaches under armed guard. Both companies said they were cancelling flights to Mombasa until at least October.

As many as 500 people were affected, sources said. Half were due to leave on Thursday from the international airport at Mombasa, Kenya’s main coastal city. The rest were booked on a second chartered jet due to fly home on Friday.
Britain warned on Wednesday that tourists should not travel to Mombasa city or to popular beaches to its north because of the threat of terrorism, and those already there should leave immediately.
