A football club has offered tickets to passengers stranded at one of the UK's airports following the Icelandic volcano ash incident.
Luton Town FC sent a delegation to the local airport when they heard about the dreadful situation. Legendary former Luton ace Ricky Hill said "We have lots of empty seats that are just as uncomfortable as the seats at the airport. This is a fantastic opportunity for the club. Oh, and it's really sad for all the stranded people too."
Luton Town were once in England's top division. Sadly they never really recovered from the kerb crawling allegations made against former manager David Pleat. The club are now no longer part of the football league following on the field failure and financial disaster. The offer is an attempt to breath life into the club.
Most stranded passengers reacted to the offer stoically. Mr Stig O'Toole said "If things get really bad then I will eat my own ear wax rather than watch Luton Town. We have already suffered more than enough."
A spokesperson for Amnesty International said that they were prepared to start a letter writing campaign at once about the plight of passengers who had been taken to Kenilworth Road, home of Luton Town FC.
