Hundreds of tourists have been left stranded and terrified on Indonesian islands following the major earthquake including a family of four from Henley.
A magnitude 7.0 quake hit Lombok, the Gili archipelago and neighbouring Bali on Sunday, killing over 130 people.
It has been reported that a relative of the family who wish to remain anonymous said, “The kids are quite traumatised, I’ve spoken to my daughter and she’s clearly very frightened and very scared – frankly they just want to come home.” The children are aged five and seven.
A subsequent tsunami warning sparked panicked scenes and tourists flocking to beaches in a bid to get rescued.
A spokesman for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) said: ‘We are working with the Indonesian authorities to provide assistance to British people caught up in the earthquake in Lombok and the Gili islands.”
