Darren Davidge from Cardiff, who suffers from Cystic Fibrosis, told Global247news how he had to return home early, he said:

“It wasn’t safe for me with my condition; it was safer to fly home for personal health reasons.

“The smoke from the fire is heavy over the towns with lots of ash falling too, it’s hard going on the lungs, I was staying in the town of San Pedro just outside Marbella, and it’s covered in heavy smoke even reaching down to the ports etc.

“It was just safer to return home and hopefully grab another break later in the year.” he finished.
