UK recruitment agency question

I am freelance electronic engineer and try to find a job by UK recruitment agency. They find me a job in Austria for 3 months contract 55E/hr 40hr/w (25/02/2016 – first contacts).

On 03/03/2016 pass the interview with the company, – on 08/03/2016 15:30 got confirmation that XXX like me and the recruiter send me the contract with all financial conditions to sign and return 9 March 2016, to start on 14 of March in Graz Austria (09/03 17:35 the recruiter send me the complete contract with all positions details – starting date, manager, …. And I decided that everything with the Job is OK, so I started to buy plane and bus tickets and accommodation. I suppose to start to work on Monday 14/03 – very short logistic time at all…

And and at the evening of 10/03, after a few technical questions I got this:

“Good afternoon. As mentioned in my previous email, I was awaiting to give you the green light as I was awaiting further information.

XXX have actually decided to work with internal resources for this position, so I am sorry but they will no longer be moving forward with offering you the position.”

My question: may I claim some compensation for the expenses ? flight and bus tickets and something else?
