A TOWN centre nightclub hosted a free Christmas party for ex-Thomas Cook employees who have had 'a miserable few months'.

PJs, on Bridge Street, gave the venue and DJ for free to the staff who won't all be getting a Christmas party this year.

Around 200 ex-cabin crew, pilots, engineers and operations staff attended the party last week and all had a brilliant time.

Rob Lees, an ex-pilot for Thomas Cook, said: "We've all had a miserable few months and this was greatly appreciated by all of us.

"There's a large number of ex-Thomas Cook crew that live in Warrington, however other colleagues travelled from out of town for the party.

"It was great to meet with ex-colleagues and share our happy memories.

"Thankfully most of us have now found new employment."
