ANGUILLA–Khorey Barrett of the Morris Vanterpool Primary School wrote a letter to Prime Minister Theresa May asking the UK for help for the island after Hurricane Irma. He received a reply from May which was hand-delivered to the school on Friday by Governor Tim Foy.

  The reply included, “We will continue to do all we can to restore the beautiful island you call home,” May said. She said she was shocked by the scale of destruction and said that her thoughts are with the people of Anguilla as they recover from the storm. She noted that the UK stands side by side with the people of Anguilla and has already supplied food, water, building materials and tools. “Our teams continue to work hard in Anguilla to make sure that people on the island have access to electricity, concrete, vehicles and other essential supplies.”
