Daily Mail Online Traveling 3 weeks ago

A horrified mother says she arrived at her holiday villa with her four young children and discovered a razor-sharp utility knife and axe had been left inside.

Ms Brougton shared pictures of the disturbing discoveries at the Jet2 villas property in Turkey on social media.

To add to their safety concerns, Ms Broughton and her partner Simon McCormack also claimed they found a pool manhole with no cover.

The family, from Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, had been staying at the Villa Nurhan in Dalyan in south-west Turkey.

She complained on Jet2’s Facebook page saying: 'We entered the villa with four young children eager to explore.

'My seven-year-old daughter came running out of her bedroom with a blade bearing Stanley knife.

'The manhole to the pool was exposed with no cover, there were bare wires on most of the electrical points and lights hanging from the ceilings! The shower was hanging off the walls.  

'We then discovered in a low kitchen cupboard that there was an axe that was accessible to everyone including our children, we couldn’t believe our eyes.'

After complaining, the family were relocated to another villa. But they claim this only happened because of the help of an 'external rep'  and not Jet2 Holidays.

'Unhappy is an understatement,' Ms Broughton added. 

'[If] it was not for Carole, we would have been stuck in a dangerous villa with a potential fatality as you can clearly see from the pictures attached!'

On its website, Jet2 describes the accommodation as 'bright and airy' with 'immaculately kept gardens.' 

Fellow social media users reacted with concern to her post.

Jill Castledine commented: 'Omg how they do that to people knowing children are going to be there. Sue them babes big massive hugs.'

Lucy Menezes added: 'Omg babe that’s disgusting.'

Jet2 have since apologised for the incident and said that Ms Broughton and her family had been moved to a different villa

And Nathan Smith said: 'Love how they provided you with an axe. Looks like a safe house! Glad you got it sorted.'

Jet2 has since apologised for the incident.

A spokeswoman for the holiday firm said: 'We apologise to the Broughton family for any inconvenience caused.

'Customer service is of the utmost importance to us and they have been moved to a different villa.

'We hope they enjoy the rest of their holiday.'
