THOUSANDS of Britons were last night told to flee Tunisia amid fears of another terror attack.

Tour operators laid on emergency airlifts for their customers and cancelled holidays to the country.

The UK Government warned that another attack was "highly likely".

The Foreign Office said: "If you're in Tunisia and you TURN TO PAGE 4 FROM PAGE ONE don't have an essential need to remain, you should leave by commercial means."

First Choice and Thomson are moving their staff out of the country.

About 300 people who travelled to the country independently should make their own arrangements to leave.

Thomas Cook said holidaymakers who come home earlier than planned will receive a refund for days they missed.

Those due to fly to Tunisia will be offered a refund or the chance to switch to another destination.
