Pictured is Keith Cerslake whose passport got lost on the way from Bransholme to Gibraltar and ended up in New York. See ROSS PARRY story RPYNEWYORK; A west Hull couple were forced to give up their lives in Spain after their passports were sent more than 3,000 miles away to strangers in New York by mistake. Keith Kerslake and his wife Louise say they now feel "sceptical" about using the Royal Mail after their passports ended up in the States, arriving there by post. They applied for their passports in May so they could carry on working but they only found out the important documents had been sent over the Atlantic last week. But by that time they had already had to leave their jobs and the country they had lived in for nine years because they were unable to work without their passports. A shocked Mr Kerslake, 53, said: "We just couldn't believe that our identifications had been sent to a stranger on the other side of the world."
