LONDON -- A Londoner who should have celebrated her 24th birthday yesterday with family here is instead stuck in Scotland, the latest Canadian stranded in a foreign country and getting little help from Canadian staff abroad.

The woman, who asked to be identified only as Lyndsay, was studying for the year at the University of Edinburgh, when a spring trip to Spain turned into an ordeal that continues.

"On March 31, I was on a trip to Barcelona with some friends and my purse got stolen, which had my credit cards and my passport in it," Lyndsay said yesterday from Scotland.
