New Bern Man Stuck in London

A man from the East is stuck in London.

Frank Vick of New Bern is in London travelling with his mother and friends. They planned to head home Saturday, but because a volcano in Iceland continues to erupt sending plumes of smoke and ash into the sky. He along with thousands of other travellers can not get a flight home because of safety reasons.

WITN Spoke on the phone with Vick Sunday. Vick says his group is hoping that they can get a flight back Tuesday.

He says they are lucky because they can stay at the hotel they were staying in before. He said for other travellers, they've been left scrambling to try and find a place.

    You people are idiots. Most of the time when someone plans a trip like that, they budget out for the amount of time that they can stay. There is a possibility that him having to STAY there or ANYONE ELSE for that matter is being caused trouble financially as far as having to pay to stay longer. I agree that this really isnt a story though seeing as though he ISNT the only one stuck over there.

    Oh please, I'd rather be stuck in London on any day. I feel so sorry for the guy. My heart is bleeding. Now, what's next?

    I'd rather be stuck in London for 10 years than be in New Bern for 10 minutes.

    Is this really a story? Yeah wow..like he isn't the only person stuck. My father in law is over in Europe stuck but that hasn't made head lines. I hope all family members make it home soon.

    I am sorry for this man, but, the people in Iceland are facing flooding, problems with their herds, ash piling up on roofs and many other problems. See photo's at http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/36553710/displaymode/1247/?beginSlide=1
