Doctor is raped during women-only Caribbean holiday… and then offered a MASSAGE as compensation by the trip’s organisers

Posted on 18th July 2016

A devastated doctor has told how she was brutally raped during a Caribbean holiday and then offered a manicure and massage to cheer her up by the company who arranged her women-only break. Georgina Mortimer booked the ‘dream holiday’ to St Lucia with Girls for Sail, a company accredited by the Royal Yacht Association, but says she was attacked in the bedroom of her shared villa within hours of arriving. Now, in a potential landmark case, the 45-year-old is taking action against the holiday company and villa owner for negligence, paving the way for other tourists to sue private property renters.

Vidisha Joshi, Head of Personal Injury, is representing Ms Mortimer.
