Customers waiting for money from Crown Currency Exchange

One of the UK's largest foreign exchange firms has collapsed, leaving thousands of families and business customers without their travel money.

Crown Currency Exchange allowed customers to pre-order as much £10,000 in foreign money.

There is a question over whether the customers will ever see their cash back - as the administrators say the company's assets fall considerably short of the £20 million that is owed to them.

Simon Gompertz reports.
