Coronavirus: Quarantined Briton calls on Richard Branson for help

Diamond Cruise passenger David Abel has made a plea to Richard Branson for help.

In an emotional broadcast, the Briton appealed to Mr Branson to fly the British passengers home on a private jet to Brize Norton so they can continue their quarantine in the UK.

The “staunch Tory” says he has no confidence in Boris Johnson to help them.

Mr Abel also reveals that fellow Briton Alan Steele is now refusing to see doctors in hospital because he has lost “all faith” in the tests they are carrying out, which are coming back with conflicting results.

“He is really on a downer,” says Mr Abel. “He just wants to get out and get home and get it sorted in the UK.”
