A flash sale of cheap flights to Thailand has got people so excited that they camped on the streets and even quit their jobs to be sure of snapping up the bargain.
The sale started at 9am on Thursday at two branches of STA Travel – in Grosvenor Gardens, London, and Corporation Street in Birmingham.

Some queued for 33 hours to get tickets and some even went as far as not turning up for work in a bid for a cheap escape to the sun.
Mollie Merrifield, 18, and her 19-year-old boyfriend Dan Jeffs left their jobs at McDonald's and Dominoes after they heard about the sale.
Speaking to the Metro, Mollie said: "We both quit our jobs to come here today, because otherwise we wouldn't have been able to make it on time.
"They just didn't reply. We tried to explain."
Tickets were issued to the first 49 people on a first-come, first-served basis.
Wahid Khan, 30 (pictured above) made sure he was first in the queue after promising his girlfriend a luxury holiday after graduation. He was lucky enough to bag a ticket.
"We thought we'd get here the night before but we read about the New Zealand offer last year where there were people camping, then we though ok, let's take this seriously.
"We were so happy to be first, I sat outside and read my book in the sun."
A further 49 tickets were offered at a discounted rate of £299 on Friday.
