Afiya Frank, 27, and former beauty queen and Miss Antigua Asha Frank, 29, from Suffolk, have not been heard from since around 10.30pm last night.

Their auntie Ruth Bolton told The Mirror: “They had boarded up the house that my sister had just finished building with wood and stocked up on water etc.

“They are always well prepared for storms in Barbuda. It’s a brick house and hopefully stood some of the storm.

“We had contact till about 10.30 pm our time last night via What’s App and then that was it. Nothing since and no way to find out how they are.

“I just want to hug my nieces and speak to them.”
