Thailand's minister for tourism and sports said that eight British and Belgian nationals who had been key figures in the rescue of the Mu Pa boys from Tham Luang cave would be going home today and tomorrow.

 

Weerasak Kowsurat promised a fitting send off and all the help and assistance of the government if and when they decide to visit the kingdom again. 

 

Weerasak told Thai Rath of the gratefulness of a nation on behalf of the people and the boys, their coach and their families. 

 

He spoke of the great effort of the foreign teams who had given up regular jobs to come and help in Thailand. Now it was time for them to be reunited with their own families.

 

He promised certificates and souvenirs as a small gesture of Thai thanks for their great efforts.

 

John Volanthen, an internet engineer and one of the British team who first discovered the missing boys and Jason Malison will be going back to the UK today.

 

The others Brits and Belgians will follow on Thursday.
