Describing it as a very difficult day for employees, Grayling told BBC television that he had "already spoken to other airlines who think they are a first rate team of people working for Monarch and are looking to try and hire some of them."

"This is a really difficult day for all those people (customers). My heart goes out to all those who are going to be disappointed this morning. This is obviously something that is beyond the control of government, we are doing our best to make sure that those people who are stranded and can't get back otherwise will be able to do so."
