A SHOCKED mum and her two-year old son were forced to stay in a “horror film” hotel after their EasyJet flight was cancelled.
Daisy-May Henderson, 26, was holidaying in Spain with son Louie and partner Callan Lawbuary, 23, when a strike by French air traffic controllers grounded their return flight to Gatwick.
After booking a free stay at the Palma Bay Club hotel through the EasyJet app, the young family were forced to barricade themselves in a room full of mould and exposed wiring after after yobs from the next floor SPAT on them.
Daisy-May said: “We got into the room and it was just something out of a horror film.
“There were cockroaches in the bathroom, electric wires hanging out the wall, a dirty bathroom and floor. It had what looked like a dump and people spitting down from their balconies on us.
“The lock was hanging off the door and I was scared for my two-year-old. Myself and my partner put our suitcases against the door and barely slept. All I have done is cry.
The young mum earlier posted pictures to Facebook with the caption: “The pictures just say it all. We have then been told there may be no flights available until the 18th.
“Easyjet thank you, thank you very much.”
Pal Luci Foot replied: “So not safe for you let alone a toddler! Disgusting.”
Rather than face another night in the Palma Bay Club, Daisy-May, Callan, and Louie flew home with another airline the next day at their own expense.
A spokeswoman for Easyjet said: “Due to Air Traffic Controllers being on strike in France on 10 October easyJet, like all airlines, was required to cancel a number of flights including Ms Henderson’s flight from Palma Mallorca to London Gatwick.

“We provided hotel accommodation for Ms Henderson on 10 October and understand that she has since chosen to source her own accommodation and return flights which Easyjet will reimburse.
“The widespread disruption caused to many airlines by this industrial action resulted in very limited hotel availability in some locations and exceptionally busy flights. Despite this, easyJet was able to provide 340 rooms in Palma Mallorca on 10 October.
“Although the strike was outside of our control, easyJet has contacted Ms Henderson to apologise for her experience.”
