Sheila Taylor, 57, of Huntingdon Street, said she received a call from daughter Laura, 32, at 12.30pm two hours after Flight VS27 bound for Orlando, Florida was due to set off. Laura was travelling with husband Matt, four-year-old Sonny, sister Rosie and Rosies partner Andy, on the holiday of a lifetime to Disney World. Mrs Taylor said: I just presumed they were on the plane when I got the call. Then when I heard the words Mum were all right my heart leapt into my mouth. All I could think was thats half my family on there as I heard my grandson shout Nanny, its an emergency. Mrs Taylor said her daughters told her they had smelled smoke and how they all had to evacuate the plane using the emergency chutes. It must have been very scary for all of them but they all got off safely, Mrs Taylor said. Fifteen people needed hospital treatment, 14 with suspected fractures, after the plane was evacuated due to what Virgin Atlantic called a technical problem. The family stayed in a hotel overnight and caught a flight to Orlando yesterday (Tuesday) morning.
