A group of holidaymakers claim that they were forced to wear the same underwear for two weeks after their luggage was left in the UK.

Nicola Cockayne, from Toton in Nottinghamshire, flew out to Kalkan, Turkey, with 11 family members and friends.

But, the tourists say their break was ruined after the mishap which occurred on the hottest day of the year.

The group, which included a five-year-old and four teenagers, was due to fly with Turkish airline SunExpress to Dalaman from Manchester on July 19.

However, their 11 suitcases and pushchair were never loaded onto the plane.

Nicola explained: “We were waiting for two hours and 40 minutes on the plane then staff said that the luggage would be sent in two days.”

Unfortunately, the bags never arrived and the group were left without their personal items for a whopping 14 days.

Nicola, 47, added: “We had to wear the same pair of underwear everyday. We had to just wash them every night.”

Her insurance awarded her £150, but the holidaymaker claims that only stretched to some essentials.

She said: “Luckily four of us ladies are the same size so we could share clothes around.

“The five-year-old didn’t have a pushchair so that made it difficult. When he'd fall asleep at a bar at night we'd have to carry him home.

“I’m a single parent. I’d saved up for two years for this holiday just for it to be ruined.

“We made the best of what we could but it wasn’t the holiday we were hoping for. We took barely any photos as we were in the same clothes the whole time."

Nicola told NottinghamshireLive she would be making a claim with SunExpress.

She added: “The lack of communication was disgusting. How can they leave families for two weeks without luggage? There were people on the flight with younger children. How did they cope?

“I’m going to try and claim for everything, for a ruined holiday. The whole experience was a total nightmare.”

Manchester Airport declined to comment, saying it was not responsible for the baggage making it onto the plane.

Daily Star contacted SunExpress for comment.
