Tour firm fails

The tour operator Greek Connections, based at Fleet, Hampshire, and specialising in package holidays to Greece, ceased trading - the third travel firm failure this week. The Civil Aviation Authority has called in the firm's pounds 86,250 bond to bring home 270 holidaymakers and provide full refunds for 200 other customers.
