According to family sources the 37-year-old who underwent an emergency operation in Palma just days before he and his wife were due to fly home to Glasgow, has failed to respond to treatment. Hospital and British Consulate staff in Palma have been in close contact since Gibson was admitted to hospital after complaining about a severe pain in his leg. It is believed that after the operation, Gibson, who has been fitted with a pace maker for a heart complaint, developed pneumonia and kidney failure. Attempts were being made to fly the family, who came on holiday without travel insurance, to Majorca last week by a Scottish newspaper.
