" …But the most determined celebrity travellers were Abba’s Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus. The songwriters launched their new musical, Kristina, in London on Wednesday.
But when all UK flights were grounded the following day, Benny and Bjorn decided to take the long way home.
A coach was hired to take them to Dover, where they caught a ferry to Calais. There they boarded a bus to Copenhagen and a train took them to Malmo and on to Gothenburg in Sweden.
Yesterday they were due to board another train home to Stockholm, their spokesman told Swedish paper Aftonbladet.
A flight from London to Stockholm would take two hours – but their gruelling journey took 30 hours. Mamma Mia!"
