Jack O'Neil was hurrying down Atkinson Street in Leedsyesterday, a woolly hat pulled tight over his head despite the unseasonably balmy weather. He was a foundry worker for 40 years but is now "too knackered" for fettling, and can remember when this part of the city on the banks of the river Aire – the likely site for one of George Osborne's new enterprise zones – was home to thousands of steel workers, engineers and manufacturers.

I am not sure if it was the cacophony of the zocalo (the main square), the colonial homes and inns along its stone streets or the glory of its churches that first spurred my romance with Oaxaca, a provincial capital squeezed between mountain ranges five hours south of Mexico City.

We were booked on an Azamara cruise from Florida departing on 23 December. We had arranged independent flights on 22 December with Virgin Atlantic from Heathrow to New York, connecting to Miami, with an overnight hotel there before the cruise. Our flight was cancelled due to the snow, and we couldn't travel. Azamara say they won't reimburse the cruise costs as the flights were not booked through them. Who is responsible?
