LETTER: Travel safe and enjoy holiday

Schools are out and the holidays are here.

Lots of your readers will be travelling around Europe.

No one wants a crisis on holiday, but if there was one would they know what number to call?

The Europe-wide emergency number is 112 - it works here too.

Calling the number costs nothing and puts you in touch with an operator, wherever in Europe you are.

One number ends confusion, cutting time for emergency services to respond to an incident.

Travel safe, enjoy your holidays and remember 112!
