The Foreign and Commonwealth Office has confirmed the 19 missing British Tourists in China have been found safe and well.

The missing party of tourists were travelling with the niche Travel Collection brand, owned by Kuoni and were last known to be travelling by coach from Chengdu to Wolong in the Sichuan province when the quake struck.

A spokeswoman for the FCO told “The group of 19 British tourist missing in the Wolong area have been found. 14 have been evacuated to Chengdu where they are safe and well. The British ambassador has visited them and they are being looked after by consular staff.”

The remaining five are being evacuated later today.
