AN EAST Yorkshire family whose Sea Princess cruise was cut short after passengers were struck down by the winter vomiting bug are among 100 holidaymakers who have begun legal action.

Mike and Frances Woodcock and their twin sons, Joshua and Samuel, then aged 10, from Fangfoss, near York, were on a seven-day Western European cruise at the end of May when the ship was forced to return to Southampton a day early ñ cancelling a stop in Lisbon.

On the same cruise a £5,000 dream wedding planned by Michelle and David Cordon, of Wakefield, was ruined when her father, Michael Wormald, 52, was so ill he only just made it to give the bride away and had to return to his cabin immediately.
