1446: You have got to feel for those Liverpool fans who cannot get to Athens after their flight was cancelled because of technical problems with the aircraft. Some of those fans say they paid up to £500 for a ticket. It is not ironic as Alanis Morissette might have you believe, but it is massively more disappointing than a black fly in your chardonnay.
1452: The stranded fans have been given a letter that says that "due to unforeseen circumstances their flight has been cancelled." Understandably, they are distraught.
The flight was scheduled to leave at 1000 this morning and was delayed and delayed until the fans were finally given the terrible news 10 minutes before they were eventually due to board.
