Airline gives newlyweds a lift after burglary

Have your say

newlyweds who were forced to cancel their honeymoon following a break-in at their home on their wedding night said they have been “cheered up no end” after an airline offered them free flights.

The burglary at Ian and Lynsey Morris’s West Yorkshire home wrecked their plans for a five-day honeymoon to Iceland.

Now the firm Iceland Express has stepped in.

Mr Morris, 39, said: “It really is a lovely gesture. It’s cheered us up no end. I’ll have to get a passport now as that was stolen as well.”

Thorunn Reynisdottir, Iceland Express’s chief commercial officer, said: “Once we heard what had happened, we wanted to do our utmost to help – it’s so upsetting that anyone could be burgled on what is set to be the happiest day of their life.”

The couple left their home in Tingley on February 3 to get married in Pontefract. They returned the following morning to discover their house had been burgled and valuables taken.

The 32-year-old bride’s engagement ring was among the stolen items.
