A donation of £3 million of her £10 million bonus to charity by Harriet Green, former CEO of Thomas Cook, has been described as an “abhorrent attempt to gain public sympathy”.

This is the view of the mother whose two children were killed in Corfu by carbon monoxide poisoning from a faulty water heater at a hotel recommended and booked for them by the tour operator. A recent inquest heard that Thomas Cook accepted without checking the statement by the hotel that there were no gas-fuelled water heaters there, an approach that prompted a recent inquest to find that the tour operator had failed in its duty of care towards its customers.
