A disabled British holidaymaker is stuck abroad due to the Dubai floods - and says he's been told he'll have to wait FOUR DAYS to fly home to Staffordshire via Birmingham Airport.
Ian Molland, 55, was due to fly home from Delhi via Dubai yesterday (17) after a solo travelling trip round India.
But when he arrived at the airport he was informed the flight was cancelled due to the flooding in Dubai, he said.
The retired hotel inspector was told his new flight wouldn't be for another four days - but he'd be put into a 4*hotel by Emirates.
But he claims him - and 180 other passengers - were checked out the hotel after just one night, and left with no accommodation until their flight on Sunday.
Dubai has seen severe flooding after unprecedented rainfall occurred across UAE this week - the heaviest rainfall in 75 years - with some areas recording more than 25cm of rain in under 24 hours.
Ian, from Tamworth, Staffordshire, said: "It's been absolutely amazing until now.

"I loved seeing the Taj Mahal, Jaipur and Jodhpur - but now I can't leave.

"Now it has truly been the experience of a lifetime - for the wrong reasons.

"I've also got health concerns and I've got to go without my important medication for five days.

"I've been abandoned in India."
