Former finance director David Jardine will receive £840,000, former chief executive Tim Byrne £1.2m, and former head of development Richard Carrick £360,000.

Peter McHugh, the new chief executive tried to calm shareholder disappointment by pointing out that protracted litigation could have resulted in even higher payments, the Times reported today.

MyTravel’s £50m accountancy hole was related to premature booking of holiday deposits and insurance.
