About 1,200 vacationers were stranded in Mallorca and the Spanish coast due to the sudden collapse of a British tour operator
The Guardian newspaper says it is unclear how the British travelers are going to make it home.

The travel company, Sun4U, is believed to have been financially hard hit by events surrounding the Icelandic ash cloud , which grounded planes across Europe earlier this year.

Sun4U said on its website that it had ceased operations and that travelers should make alternative travel plans.

The company's collapse follows that of another British tour operator, Goldtrail Travel, which also suddenly closed up shop, leaving 16,000 vacationers stranded, mostly in Greece and Turkey.
