Greece fires: Thousands forced to flee ‘disaster film’ wildfires – BBC News

As many as 10,000 Britons are estimated to be on the Greek island – part of which has been ravaged by fierce fires.

It has forced many holidaymakers to sleep in schools and sports centres.

Rishi Sunak has urged people to remain in touch with tour operators, some of which have begun sending repatriation flights to bring people back to the UK.

It is unclear what started the fires but extreme temperatures, dry conditions and strong winds across Greece have aided their spread.
