Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has said he remains “very concerned” about the situation in Turkey following an attempted military coup.
Mr Johnson said officials were working hard to “do the best” for the many Britons in Turkey and urged them to follow the Foreign Office’s updated travel advice, which continues to “strongly” urge holidaymakers and others to stay indoors.
